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!

howdy. i'm the sheriff of bad unicode support

Phew is excellent (have only watched season one so far)

I appreciate the broad range of themes it's covered so far

I find each episode to be deeply thought provoking... Not sure which is my favorite

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 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

I'm really excited about what we're doing this year 😃 This press release explains:

@Liberapay throwing on here to increase exposure

See my question above, would love to know what people think!

Learn more about OSHWA at

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?

Spread the word: the FSF tech team needs spring interns! As an intern, you work closely with FSF staff members in your area of interest, such as network administration, GNU Project support, or Web development. Apply by January 19!

Acheivement unlocked: Successful / install

Using it is pleasant! Intuitive UI/UX, extensive user control of the system, growing content availability. Neat stuff 😃

Check it out:

@apertus @frd can you spread the word about the libre graphics at SCaLE 16x this year?

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:

(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

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.

Put the data kindly provided by @eliotberriot and cleaned the anomalies (drops and spikes) out. Mastodon fediverse growth in 2017:

Kinda quiet here... Anyone have any recommendations for interesting foss-people to follow on #Mastodon? #foss #linux #ubuntu #opensource

chaotic neutral: never take a stance on the pronunciation of gif, but interrupt any debate to extoll the virtues of the webm format

Playing around with for the first time and it really lives up to the hype

The GNU/Linux community around the platform is amazing, helping as I make every possible mistake while working on this project 😃

Very interesting discussion taking place at

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.
