"elsewhere" was in twitter-land where i mentioned that i am
pondering GPL licensing for future projects/releases - mostly
because i see it opening the possibility of getting licensing income.
I've received substantial money in context of writing BSD-licensed
software or consulting around it. I am not sure that will
be as easy in the coming years or maybe i am just envious of
a friend of mine who is sailing around the world with his
Yacht earned from selling software licenses :)
One related higher level goal of mine is: i'd like to
have enough money to be able to work on the things i want
to work on. Not the other way round.
