Ric de France (a.k.a ric_man)

I've been visiting the wikipedia web site for a while now, and I even started off an article on emerge, but that was before I knew how to register, or had confidence in what I was doing.




  • Wasting money with proprietary software that have (usually better) Open Source equivalents
  • Bureaucracy and "over-engineering" a solution
  • Inertia in major organisations
  • People that stuff up, don't admit it, don't try to fix it, but instead attempt to play it down or cover it up
  • People that have closed minds to other possibilities
  • People or processes that remove my freedom
