@sir an amazing read @timidger! Thank you and I wish you good luck with your next project!

@sir >Snirk convinced me to look into Rust.
this was the beginning of the end

@sir The biggest WTF from this one:

> For the Google internship I was disallowed from working on any side projects without them having copyright over the code.

I wouldn't have expected it to be this bad. This kind of thing is illegal in Germany.

@carl @sir Sorry, but do you have any evidence towards this claim? Neither § 43 UrhG nor § 69 b UrhG (the variation claiming extra rights for software) are open to this interpretation that an employer is entitled to copyrights on software created outside the contract.

@sir I didn't know that's one of the origins for wlroots
