@aral a lot of my concerns are taken care of with this page I didn't see yesterday:
The code is published here https://github.com/HSEIreland/ and from what I can see, there is a lot of documentation about the functions and databases.
Facebook acquires OpenStreetMap partner Mapillary -
Is it basically this?
1. set up a for-profit company
2. tell everyone it's a "collaborative", "open data" project
3. partner with a non-profit to earn brownie points & attention
4. train up your models and develop your tech based on crowdsourced data you got people to willingly upload
5. sell yourself to Evil Corp for $$$
6. shut down the open API, minimise and hamper any community efforts, maximise profits
Facebook is out of control. If it were a country it would be North Korea https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/jul/05/facebook-is-out-of-control-if-it-were-a-country-it-would-be-north-korea
"Ever since the Yugoslav war in the 1990s, I've got border issues. Especially borders that are closed or closing."
On the verge of the election weekend in Croatia, here's a personal reflection on the parallels between my experience of the Yugoslav war in the 1990s and the world in 2020. https://fo.am/blog/2020/06/25/systems-crumble/
The open-source model treats open source as a utilitarian model for better programming, while the free software model is adamant that it's an issue of individual freedom. Both models are open to exploitation; open source because it explicitly holds itself out to be useful to corporations, and free software because it includes, not just incidentally but foundationally, profit-making corporations in its freedoms. https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html.en Both deal only incidentally or poorly with the community that arise out of the development and use of software.

Here's an idea: every time you feel like sharing a new exciting app / tech / program, don't limit yourself to looking at its features. But also look at:
- Who is developing it? Is the team diverse? What kind of organisation is it?
- What resources are they relying on?
- Have they, **from the beginning**, published a code of conduct, and/or released a statement that specifies that fascists, racists, queerphobes, patriarchs, down-punchers are not welcome to use or contribute to the tool?
