Build versus Buy versus Bankruptcy

We're gonna spin up an end-to-end service for developing, delivering, and distributing Netflix-grade products on any legally compliant internet device. That is to say, a device capable of loading a webview of any engager's choice. This project is then able to be remixed and redistributed from within itself to anyone else running this project.

Root access may be legally demanded for devices where this functionality is not readily accessible. 2077 rules may apply.

The Raspberry Pi 400 is capable of running Netflix.

To demonstrate the power of such a system, a proof-of-concept was produced.

This project originated on behalf of Netflix in collaboration with an individual contributor. As such, the public version is CC BY-SA 4.0. This grants the flexibility for the business to evaluate their position in relation to the commons and the market and the individual and the project.

Netflix retains the rights to a private internal copy under the MIT license. The explicit implication is that any modifications to community generated content will be disclosed publicly as the community will be protected by the CC BY-SA 4.0 terms, while internal modifications may be held proprietarily.

To satisfy the mutually nimble requirements of modularity in a public private partnership, this project has been designed accordingly.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
