This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
To work, read mail, and analysis. I didn't pick up the fact
that Sun's public-cloud plans (which always seemed a little crazy)
with Oracle in charge. I guess that is why OO.o is orphaned
out of Dave Douglas' "Cloud Computing and Developer Platforms"
group - fair enough; OO.o has never been a developer platform (not
one that either external (or apparently internal) developers wanted
to build on), and it's 'Cloud' credentials always seemed flaky to me.
Far better to focus on the value to customers there it seems to me.
It seems with Zonker's departure; that there is an exciting
up as a community manager for OpenSUSE.
Watched some of the strategy videos at Oracle
wrt. Java and OO.o. Apparently no auto-cue for Michael Bemmer; odd.
Lots of emphasis on JavaFX in the Java spiel - which last I checked is
still deeply mired in non-openness. OO.o - nothing new, beyond a very fuzzy
screenshot of a 'web office' suite in the browser (sigh). It is amazing
to me - that the most important predictor of success and adoption
for these technologies is not presented: are we going to see genuine
open-ness ? will Sun be fixed where it has screwed up ? I suppose only
time will tell.
