Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

@air_pump he literally said it's the only hostage situation where Stockholm syndrome kicks in even before the hostage taking takes place.

@xpac Haha, I work for the same company. Or this is a big coincidence. :) @leah

@arne abbreviation very closely related to that German hacker club?

@xpac Yes pretty much. Someone lost a letter.

@arne @xpac afaik you both live in NRW in the Ruhr- or Rhineland so it wouldn't surprise me if you work for the same company ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

@sandzwerg Company is active in all of Germany (and some other EU and ex-EU countries... I'm just too lazy to walk upstairs and search for @arne on the Exchange server ๐Ÿ˜œ

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.

@federico3 Webhostaging. Great idea. Although it sounds like web ho staging.

@xpac "hostage" is a little off the mark to me. SaaS clearly stands for "Slavery as a Service", or "Slaveware as a Service". :)
