@downey "Do you believe that a company that asks their employees to cut corners won’t ask open source projects they sponsor to hack around problems?" 👏 👏 👏

I notified before how the well-known Dutch museum of "Beeld en Geluid" (Sound & Vision) is experimenting with offering of their extensive historic video collection via @peertube
