Elitism does not have a place in society. If you are in a networking platform (this case LinkedIn) that is for professionals, why hide when checking others’ profile?
Check this out, this was yesterday:
in English: “Someone in the animation sector of Portland and surrounding areas, Oregon, USA has seen your profile.” Could they be afraid of letting their employer know that they are looking at the forbidden fruit of open source and thus ? Or maybe is a proprietary maker trying to figure if there is too much open source competition? Hmmm.. intriguing.
Maybe an example of elitism B.S.
Likely, because I mentioned and posted in LinkeIn the issue of society’s training and Gentrifications yesterday!!!!!! What a coincidence! Otherwise, it does not happen! (Linkedin is not particularly helpful to make connections of matter) Of course, maybe is someone that thinks like me but is not aware that they are “free” to think. Or are we, really, free?
That. Is. Elitism. An open source promoter, God forbid Blender ex-instructor, has pointed fingers at them, and they don’t like it. You be the judge.
That is why teaching students about open source is a great way to stop this mentality of discrimination. And it is also good to teach the old school to change habits!
