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.
Lived in Texas long enough that I'm now annoyed when a spell checker doesn't have "ya'll" in its dictionary.
Over the last ten years I've driven about 8,000 miles per year. Which is just less than 25 miles a day. Clearly there are days that are spikes, the standard deviation is probably 10, but I'm hoping those numbers show that it is reasonable to expect that most of my travels will be electric from now on. To the future!

"The Book of Inkscape" is part of this Humble Bundle where the money goes to a charity of your choice.
Highly recommended book. DRM free. For charity.
Tracking down panics caused by NULL pointers is definitely the experience I want in a modern programming language. Thanks Go!
Got my @PINE64 NAS setup with ZFS and running nicely.
The difficult part was getting spl-dkms to build (dep of zfs-dkms), which requires the instructions in this forum post: https://forum.armbian.com/topic/6789-build-zfs-on-rk3328/?do=findComment&comment=53681
This attitude of undermining local government that has overtaken many state (and even county) politicians aggravates me.
Not only is it trying to enact their will against the will of the local voters, but it is the same people who argue "state's rights" when the federal government does the same thing.
It is intellectually inconsistent and antidemocratic.
Pragmatic idealist. Building a company Axiom. Worked on Ubuntu Phone. Inkscape co-founder. Probably human.
