Why we created humans.txt

Humans.txt was born while talking about how many freelancers have serious problems establishing their work authorship. Many times they are contractors for companies that sign the work, or the final customer does not want to have their names appearing in the web. We can understand this, but it does not seem too fair.

We think the author is he who takes the pictures, she who makes the design and the artwork, he who writes the texts or the code. That work deserves respect and it should be possible to establish this authorship within the site.
