… Or you shouldn’t. I don’t know, I’m just a random person on the internet. Don’t let random internet blog posts make your decisions for you, carefully weigh the options and decide what’s right for you. Or don’t. Disclaimers aside, many people have brought up the fact that despite hosting much of the best open source code on the planet, Github itself was not open source. Recently there was quite a rustling over an open letter to Github, which seemingly spurred Github to make all the actions they were taking to make the platform greater more publicly accessible.
Recently I’ve been lazily working on a project I call “loltrove”. It’s taken me a long time to complete it (mostly because of lack of work), but I really wanted a chance to work on seeing how AngularJS and all the good ‘ol web technology I know and love could be used to create a semi-useful and possibly completely useless chrome extension. As browsers grow as a platform (and especially chrome), I think that extensions are extremely important, and getting my hands dirty writing one seemed like a good way to familiarize myself.
