First Do No Harm

Maya Gans and I are pleased to announce that TidyBlocks has adopted the Hippocratic License, a new open source license that allows people to use software freely with one condition:

The Software may not be used by individuals, corporations, governments, or other groups for systems or activities that actively and knowingly endanger, harm, or otherwise threaten the physical, mental, economic, or general well-being of individuals or groups in violation of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (

We are grateful for Coraline Ada Ehmke and others for creating this license.
