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.
Learning about Linux Kernel Tracing libraries at #scale19x presented by Steven Rostedt, 300 slides!
Gonna be certified to cause trouble.
Starting to find things and get ready for SCALE. Excited to learn things and see folks!
If you're gonna be in LA this weekend, make sure to reach out!
Glad Google is making these changes. But, wait, Google knows how to delete people's data and not track them constantly? Perhaps we could do that *all* the time? Or make that the default?
All of the cannons that are in Open Street Maps, in case you were looking for this:
If you're in Phoenix here's a cool summer camp where you can learn Inkscape and other Open Source multimedia tools.
Oh, and you have to be in 6th-8th grade.
We are sad to inform our community that Marina Zhurakhinskaya died on Saturday. Outreachy wouldn't exist without her dedication, which continued until her last day. https://sfconservancy.org/news/2022/jun/14/remembering-marina
There is a #bug in Inkscape 1.2 that could destroy gradients, clips/masks, symbols, swatches & clones in a drawing.
You'll only notice it happened after saving file & later opening it again.
To work around this bug DO NOT use copy-paste while the Export dialog is open!
For more details on the bug, head here: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inkscape/-/issues/3600
The bug will be fixed in Inkscape 1.2.1 (a fix is already available in the development ('master') branch).
I feel like Tooting Library really needs a Mastodon account.
The delay was causes by the portals on 20.04 being slightly broken. But they now have gotten an SRU to fix them so it should work there as well (Ubuntu 20.04 is 60% of the Inkscape snap users).
With CarPlay taking over all the screens, it would seem they'd have to implement features considered safety features. And those are regulated for good reasons. Can't imagine Apple verifying every update to their phones with the vehicle manufacturers.
There are bad ideas, and then there are amazingly bad ideas. Abbott suggested that Texas should do unannounced shooter simulations, which I can only guess is with the goal of traumatizing children.

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.
Pragmatic idealist. Building a company Axiom. Worked on Ubuntu Phone. Inkscape co-founder. Probably human.
