'Tis better to give (for free) than to receive (money). Go.
To open-source or to hoard, that is the question.
I work hard at what I do (so do you) and like the thought of getting paid for intellectually novel property, mostly because I like food and I have to pay for food. I also want as many people as possible to see/hear/experience what I have to share. (I'm not specifying exactly what it is I'm talking about b/c this is relevant to everyone who makes stuff for a living.)
So, esteemed Tedsters, help me see the light. Do I post content open-sourced online, better society, and find another way to make money, or market and sell withholding rights? Is this a false dichotomy?
Thanks in advance for any replies, and trust that you will heavily influence what I do. In case you really can't comment without knowing the category, it's educational curriculum.
