TIL why adding an emoji to your sms suddenly chops your character limit (per message) from 160 down to only 67 https://www.twilio.com/blog/2017/03/what-the-heck-is-a-segment.html

Free software, post-RMS
In the meanwhile, we have some difficult work in front of us; while again I think RMS stepping down was completely correct, we can at least say that RMS was stubbornly principled. Right now if you look at the OSI license lists, I think you can see a lot of people trying to chip away at the principles of FOSS, maybe even unintentionally.
We need to re-examine and clearly be able to articulate the reasons we are taking these positions ourselves.
