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.

Don't agree with all the details of this opinion piece but I find this thought remarkable in how it frames the divisiveness America is feeling right now: "This has sharpened one of our many forms of polarization.

Today I am less of a believer in the privacy benefits of cash. It seems like the ATM could record the serial numbers of every bill given out and deposited, which would give a fairly accurate view of your spending with cash. — https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/23/nyregion/nyc-cashless-ban.html?emc=rss&partner=rss
