Finished the first chapter of the book I'm working on. It's about community management and some of the lessons I've learned over the years. Excited to be making such good progress!

Hacked on some stuff today. Discussed developer onboarding, tutorials, and languages with @hergertme and some other folks. Now I have to decide between more coding, reading, or watching The Sopranos.

@Gargron can anyone put my name is for a remote follow? For instance, when I click on a username and it takes me to their nose and I put in my username to follow them. Is there any authentication that is supposed to happen there?

GUADEC is a small, intimate Linux desktop conference every year in Europe or UK. It's the best place to get your voice heard about what you want from GNOME.

Is there something you want us to focus on? Is there a pet project you want to lead? Do you just want to meet the people that create the software you use? This is it. It's arguably the most welcoming group of people in Free Software and we'd love for you to join us.

I'll personally make it my goal to ensure you have a good time of you come

@Wimpress I really haven't opened g+ in the past weeks. Yesterday I hit a milestone convincing @ogra to join the party.

Ahh what a nice day outside. Time to sit on my computer.

For the first time in history, the UK had a point in which none of the electricity generated came from coal. None of it. It's a small step for the national grid, but potentially a giant leap for mankind. Credit to Mark W Tebbutt‏ on Twitter for alerting me to it. mastodon.social/media/8VY_Sbid

@micahflee would love to talk to you at some point about what software, as a journalist, you use.

So first thing first! Do we have Giphy integration?

A week ago I couldn't imagine myself using anything different than Unity, a week later, already got used to Gnome. All I need these shells for are to open my apps and development tools.

We are on the verge of 200k users. . .organically. . .with nearly 150k of those in the last 8 or so days. . .I think it is safe to say that "extinction" talk was grossly premature.
