Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.
@xpac Best CEO ever!
Software as a Stockholm syndrome
@air_pump he literally said it's the only hostage situation where Stockholm syndrome kicks in even before the hostage taking takes place.
@arne abbreviation very closely related to that German hacker club?
@xpac Yes pretty much. Someone lost a letter.
@xpac User as a hostage?
@xpac and Data as a Hostage...
SaaS: The ultimate form of privatization of digital tools to benefit corporations at the expense of individual freedom.
It's the worst of capitalism applied to goods that literally cost NOTHING to replicate.
@xpac are you hiring? :P
@federico3 Webhostaging. Great idea. Although it sounds like web ho staging.
@xpac the FSF/RMS calls it “Service as a Software Substitute”
