google is terrified of the AGPL and it's hilarious

"The license places restrictions on software used over a network which are extremely difficult for Google to comply with. Using AGPL software requires that anything it links to must also be licensed under the AGPL. Even if you think you aren’t linking to anything important, it still presents a huge risk to Google because of how integrated much of our code is."

Getting a job as Google sounds rad, and way cooler than what them tech bros are doing.
