It is American Thanksgiving (well, in America, it’s the next day here in Japan) and Justin asked a good question in the Mega Maker Slack today and I wanted to share my answer publicly.

When it comes to tech or business, what are you most thankful for?

My answer:

Open source. Not just because there’s a bunch of high quality tools available for free (gratis), but that it shows that humans, no matter where they’re from or what they believe can work together for the greater good.

When I was first getting into programming windows ruled and the idea of being able to work using open source all day every day was still a bit for dreamers. Grateful that’s no longer the case.
