Two chances for Free Software artists and designers to meet up with fellow artists and developers at Libre Graphics Meeting 2018 in Seville, and for the first time this year Southern California Linux Expo (SCaLE) will have a Libre Graphics track also!
Come say hello to @GIMP devs at LGM, or my presentation on GIMP at SCaLE!
If you had a nice chess set...
And all of the pieces were Linux-themed...
What would each piece be? (ex: Tux as the Pawn, Stallman as the Rook, etc.)

howdy. i'm the sheriff of bad unicode support
And we have built a strong in-house marketing team with external agency and vendor partners who support our work
Ultimately it's all possible thanks to our people. We have an incredible team, without rival, and I am so fortunate to be a part of it
I love this video we made showing off what the 140 people in our company do every day
They are the foundation who make all these products, campaigns, and ideas possible:
Meanwhile: Customers, journalists, and partners keep wanting to learn more about our company because we are genuinely unique
I love the idea of bringing our production floor to a tradeshow and feel like it's the confluence of several themes over the last year
As a Free Software and Open Source Hardware company: We already share how we make everything -- check
As a company that manufactures our own products in the USA: It is logistically and technically possible -- check
A little more background info for #marketing friends here on Mastodon:
Our products are an enabling technology, a means to an end rather than an end on their own
We've been talking a lot over the last year about how they can make everything, from electronics enclosures to water turbines
But people love the fact that they make themselves! I do too, it's awesome and thanks to the legacy of #reprap
I'm really excited about what we're doing this year 😃 This press release explains:
Considering pitching the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) Board on joining @Liberapay
Little concerned about not seeing other large US-based FOSS orgs on there like FSF, EFF, SF Conservancy
We'd need to check into accounting, legal, security, etc. before implementing anything, too
What do you think, Mastodon?
@apertus @frd can you spread the word about the libre graphics at SCaLE 16x this year? https://pixls.us/blog/2017/12/lgm-and-libre-graphics-at-scale-16x/
We'd love to have some video presentations!
Speaking of documentation:
Check out LulzBot 3D printer and accessory documentation for manufacturing, technical support, and marketing online at: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/
(OHAI stands for Open Hardware Assembly Instructions, it's a freely licensed program that I'm happy to say was forked for use by the Libre Space Foundation's SatNOGS project)
We also wrote up a lot for the new Cura LulzBot Edition 3D printing software, published at https://lulzbot.com/cura
Wrapped up last workday of the year, exhausted and proud of everything our team accomplished this year. Lots of good stuff and too much to post here!
Sprint of ten products over two months was especially good. They're a hit with users. Developing docs in parallel with engineering really improved execution.
chaotic neutral: never take a stance on the pronunciation of gif, but interrupt any debate to extoll the virtues of the webm format
Very interesting discussion taking place at https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15999610
If you're new to the project you'll glean insight into its scope, its advantages, and also some of the limitations that can be expected from a first generation camera.
