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.
I didn't realize that advertisers had word block lists for their ads. As a result, it probably lowered BLM protest coverage: "CNN reports ... BLM and protests was affected in particular, monetized 57% lower than other news content." — https://marketoonist.com/2020/08/brandsuitability.html
DSPs are black boxes today, but there is no reason they have to be. Hopefully vulnerabilities like these will push the industry to change. — https://arstechnica.com/?p=1697639
American greatness was created through decreasing inequality. We need to keep going.
"The Chicago and Stanford economists calculated that the simple, radical act of reducing discrimination against those groups was responsible for more than 40 percent of the country’s per-worker economic growth after 1960. It’s the reason the country could sustain rapid growth with low unemployment, yielding rising wages for everyone, including white men without college degrees."
Wow, love that I mistyped "type" in this post. A mistake, but it fits.
While they probably didn't commit a crime, this should be criminal. Intimidating a black church on a Sunday. If any of the flags flown at this "rally" are ones you believe in, realize the company you keep. — https://www.dallasobserver.com/music/friendship-west-baptist-church-blue-lives-matter-posed-as-blm-rally-11932334
I support deaf people getting high quality access to information on the spread of sars-cov-2, just not sure an ASL interpretor at Trump's briefings will get them that. — https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/04/us/politics/asl-interpreter-lawsuit-coronavirus-trump.html
Immigrants are now "disappearing" without anyone seemingly able to track them. Using the COVID19 crisis as an excuse to punish children seeking asylum. — https://feeds.texastribune.org/link/16799/13776912/border-migrant-children-hotels
In the middle of a pandemic we can't properly track cases because the president wanted to give a corrupt contract to a friend who was incompetent. — https://arstechnica.com/?p=1695532
The bill is one thing, but I'm more inspired by people in congress seeing that science has been a key part of America's success in the last fifty years. Hopefully having those with the mics supporting science will push back towards a more fact based dialog in the US. — https://arstechnica.com/?p=1695629
@federicomena On the plus side, lots of scanners magically work over the network now with Linux with no fuss, no setup, no additional drivers — once this one is installed:
People are working on getting this into SANE by default. Meanwhile, just install it and things work like magic.
Prebuilt packages are even on the OBS: https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/pzz/

I support the "chihuahua" becoming an international unit of measure. — https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-53498780
Not sure where the incomplete data is, but it seems according to the data published there four hospital regions are completely out of ICU beds. B, J, K and R. Covering about 2.5M people.
There are beds elsewhere in the state, but not a good sign.
Thanks Coronavirus Task Force for playing with reporting. From Texas Dept. of Health:
"DSHS is reporting incomplete hospitalization numbers today due to a transition in reporting to comply with new federal requirements."

Wow. Comes down to if someone has the data, you have to imagine they'll use it. Do you love your corporate GMail? — https://www.theinformation.com/articles/internal-google-program-taps-data-on-rival-android-apps
Pragmatic idealist. Building a company Axiom. Worked on Ubuntu Phone. Inkscape co-founder. Probably human.
