Not much excitement around here, but hey, new GNOME 3.28 release is out, and Builder has a metric crap ton of improvement.
OK, once again trying to make sure that I stay on mastodon. :P
Getting flamed on /r/linux. Love it. If I can drive them crazy thats great. But if I can convert them that is even better.
Man, the people on /r/linux are very deranged people. The things that get people riled up about. Absolutely nothing substantial gets talked about. It's all fire and no heat.
No adverts on their site; you might ponder how this is possible!

GTK+ hackfest is over, @mclasen posted summaries at bit.ly/2GLwh8z and bit.ly/2DXbAok - highlights is GTK+ moving to @gitlab and planned initial GTK+4 release in fall, but will re-evaluate at GUADEC. #fosdem2018 #Linux #GNOMELove
(I would have used the GNOME account, but don't have access to it at the moment)
The GTK+ hackfest is currently going on right now in Brussels!
sheehs, I keep forgetting to get back on here.. way too many social media networks
I tend to be political on twitter, free software/open source on G+/mastodon, and I avoid facebook.
So I'm thinking of doing a podcast. I dont really want to do the kind of podcasts that are currently out there. I want to do something that i less about technology but more about people. Think Fresh Air but with open source/free software guests. Less about technology but more about the people and what drives them. I had actually had two versions in mind, one that's actually talking while cooking and the other format as simply a conversation in an intimate setting.
Finally someone who gets it - https://www.theregister.co.uk/2018/01/08/desktop_linux_open_source_standards_accessible/
I reached out to him to talk about the conference I and others are working on as part of a long range vision of creating an application eco-system and moving from a distro-centric model to a hybrid distro/developer centric model.
Working on getting a System76 presence here on mastodon. Got me a meerkat machine to run it!
