Howdy Mastodon!

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.

They also have a live editor that is nice to play with (that can save as SVG): mermaidjs.github.io/mermaid-li

Many thanks to everyone who came out to the first ever libre graphics track at #SCaLE16x! We had a great variety of speakers and I learned a few new things!

And thank you to everyone who stopped by the #gimp and #inkscape booth to say hello and chat. It was nice to meet all of you.

Presentation videos are up from SCALE!

Not good news for Texas potentially going liberal in 2018. Individual districts matter more than stat totals though. โ€” texastribune.org/2018/03/07/bl

This. So this. "One Hackernews explains this is a good warning not to make important things depend on convenient things provided by third-parties without obligation. Because this warning was posted on a venture capital website used almost exclusively by people whose entire businesses depend on Amazon Web Services, my computer's irony co-processor exploded and I had to finish this article at my local public library." โ€” n-gate.com/hackernews/2018/03/

While I would like to see more restrictions on guns in the US I agree with the plaintiffs in this case. We can't have companies arbitrarily discriminating whether it be selling a cake to a gay couple or guns. โ€” dallasnews.com/news/guns/2018/

Looking at a traffic map this morning, there is nothing here that convinces me I should work in an office.

Surprised it was cheaper to make a fully articulated robotic arm to use a standard fast food cook surface rather than a heated conveyer belt like a tortilla cooker. โ€” bbc.co.uk/news/technology-4329
