While his original idea has some sound points, the ideological militancy with which he pursues it does more harm to free software than good at this point. BSD-style licenses are not the enemy of free software.

Shunning BSD goes far beyond attacking non-free software; it's shunning free software proponents who don't shun non-free software. What's next, refusing to work with developers who also contribute to BSD projects? Refusing to work with developers who don't refuse to work with those developers? Take that far enough and you're basically on your own.

Valve's Economist Yanis Varoufakis Appointed Greece's Finance Minister 328

eldavojohn writes A turnover in the Greek government resulted from recent snap elections placing SYRIZA (Coalition of the Radical Left) in power — just shy of an outright majority by two seats. Atheist, and youngest Prime Minister in Greek history since 1865, Alexis Tsipras has been appointed the new prime minister and begun taking immediate drastic steps against the recent austerity laws put in place by prior administrations. One such step has been to appoint Valve's economist Yanis Varoufakis to position of Finance Minister of Greece. For the past three years Varoufakis has been working at Steam to analyze and improve the Steam Market but now has the opportunity to improve one of the most troubled economies in the world.
