Engineer working for Axiom.co. Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.
An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.
I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.

Is there any practical documentation on using the XDG Portals?
It seems like everything is "hints" that implementors may or may not implement with no identification of the implementation so that apps can somewhat handle it.
Have a Canon R5 and a couple of manual lenses that I couldn't get to work with it at all. Turns out it is the setting "Release Shutter w/o Lens" -- works great now. Putting this out there for anyone else with the problem.
The new snap uses desktop portals and finally drops all the interfaces that kept it from being fully confined. There is a chance for breakage there, so if you could make sure to check out file handling in general I'd really appreciate it.
Working on getting the snap updated for the upcoming @inkscape release. If you've got a moment to test it I'd appreciate it. You can switch using this command:
snap refresh --candidate inkscape
And switch back with --stable.
Disappointed to see the Dems take a performative loss instead of codifying the parts of Roe that can get done in today's Senate. A bit would be better than none. But they're trying to get votes more than govern.
A marketing comic talking about all how marketers are frustrated with ad tech lacking transparency and being impossible to verify. Marketers being frustrated is something that could cause real change in the industry.
Probably not as much change as I would like, but even if ad tech folks had to publish enough that their customers could verify their claims that would result in a significantly more transparent system than what we have today.
Also, can't seem to find out if the Ubuntu pre-installs come with ZFS root enabled. Guessing not, but I'd really prefer that.
Been thinking about getting the XPS 13 Plus when it came out, but apparently you can't get 32 GB of RAM without switching to Windows? Doesn't seem like that's a "Developer Edition" thing.
Excited about the potential of building hydrocarbons out of renewable energy and carbon recapture. Still early, but potentially a solution for the future.
Pragmatic idealist. Building a company Axiom. Worked on Ubuntu Phone. Inkscape co-founder. Probably human.
