A reader rightly questioned my previous post on the subject as inadequate to any review or exposition. It was an experience report in a world that needs a review. Thanks @cstartorg.
So we’re educating ourselves, as concerned citizens interested in a touchy subject.
A google search for “Freedom of Speech ITAR” reveals the work of many many people on our subject. How does ITAR affect open source engineering for space systems.
A scan through the Epic Free Speech Archive confirms and explores the concept that the constitution which has made us great continues to provide for our development as a peaceful nation.
Likewise that search reveals more.
So be brave, open space awaits.
Of course there’s megatons of confusion out there, so as in all things, one needs to correctly classify principles versus discussion versus raw noise.
