This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
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.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Up early. Amused that Wikileaks now has a DNS via twitter
feature. Interested in this cautionary
tale of the woes of Corporate Trademark ownership. Further
confirmation of the intrinsic richness of the Mono environment was found
in its Lake.
How did we manage to wedge so many evolutionary metaphores into one
Lake is also home to one of the most productive aquatic ecosystems on earth ...
Mono Lake water has an unusual chemical brew of sodium,
carbonates, sulfates, borates, and even trace amounts of
arsenic. Yet, it is astonishingly productive. Sure, you won't
find fish, and most aquatic life on earth can't survive in
Mono's waters, but if you think it's toxic, spending an hour
at the shoreline during summer will tell you a strikingly
different story. Sad to see the UK
Department of Health not grasping their desparate
need for Free Software.
Interesting paper on how to grow
your project into an extra-large one, that I suppose re-states the
recieved wisdom of truly open-development. Found the nice riastats website pretty - though
amusingly you need flash to see, essentially a static image with
Lunch, reviewed draft TDF bylaws in the wiki, looking good,
file un-paid leave. Quick call with interviewee Joseph Powers
who has been doing some great work on LibreOffice. Plugged away at
reviewing and merging old patches.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
