Docker is an attack on computing freedom 

The purpose of Docker is not, in fact, to make things easier for us as systems administrators. It's to make it easier for the folks writing and packaging software to force you to treat the software as a black box instead of making their software easier to build, configure, and use.

I don't care if you find Docker more convenient as an open source user or developer. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, and you're being lazy.

Welcome to capitalism, where tech startups fake 'genius' AI using hidden POC sweatshop labor in a 'black box' to rake in profits.

"AI, games, Amazon, it's all made with magic! In our magic black box!"
"What's in it?"
"Nevermind, just eat your kale salad and let's do yoga!"
*Open box, find a sweatshop*

And this is Earth, as seen from Saturn, 1.44 billion kilometres away. Taken on July 19, 2013. So technically, this one photograph contains every human who's ever lived. Right there on that little blue fleck of light.

Earth is tiny. We should really take better care of it.
