Fuck Proprietary Skills

People don't learn how to program, but learn how to S3 or EC2, people don't learn how to illustrate but how to Photoshop, or how to C4D. "Oh, I couldn't possibly make music without Ableton.." This is sad.


@neauoire @gabek@mastodon.social How do you feel about having open source tools as your skill? Is it OK to learn how to GIMP?

@stevenroose @gabek Not a fan, but at least it feels slightly less like your skillset is being rented to you.
