I think most importantly, I want to see the internet transition from a network of a few corporate giants to a network of thousands of small, well-connected organizations. Rather than sustainability via multibillion dollar corporation budgets, sustainablity via grassroots user-funded sources and low operational expenses. Cooperation over competition.

After experiencing sending simple git patches by email to GNU Guix, whenever I think of contributing to a project on GitHub or GitLab I feel like it's a major downgrade. No, I certainly don't need an account to contribute. I don't want to clone the repo to my account and then send a pull request. I want to send a simple patch. It's just email.

Q: If we instituted Universal Basic Income, who would clean the toilets?

A: Highly paid professionals.

Q: How highly paid?

A: The market will decide, but you can get an upper bound by thinking of how much you'd have to be paid to quit your job and switch to cleaning toilets.

Q: That's quite a lot. Wouldn't that result in a drain from other jobs?

A: It would mostly attract people strongly motivated by money. Draining the jobs mainly occupied by people like that sounds like an improvement.
