Sparrow SMS keeps bringing you events that are related to you in with the increasing dependency on different types of technologies, it’s high time that we stop and think for a moment; ponder upon the impact these technologies have on us, on our daily life, on our freedom. While technologies have been built for the betterment of human life, there are times when these very technologies limit us, and even harm us. And, that is where software freedom comes into play.
Software freedom, what does that even mean? How is freedom even related to software? Well, when you use a software, how fair is that only the developers of the software can hold the rights to change, modify, improve or demand pay for it. When you’re happily browsing through your web browser, how can you be sure that your browser is not logging in and sending your browser history to someone else? How can you be absolutely sure that the software is doing only what it says it’s doing and not more than that? And, this is what Software freedom is; free, transparent and sustainable technologies, which ensure that the “right for freedom” that we tend to emphasize so much on, is being provided to us.
