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.
Feel like we need a parody of "Go the F*ck to Sleep" that is "Stay the F*ck at Home"
Perhaps we could get Samuel L. Jackson to do the audio book version as well!
I've assembled a small pack of 7 detailed, intricate mandalas for colouring. They start at my normal level of detail (which is usually quite detailed XD), then get more difficult with smaller details.
The pack is free, but you can tip me if you want to! (And you can change the 'suggested' tip to any amount you like).
Enjoy! Should keep you busy for a few days of isolation at least :D

Thinking about this more, it is really the effect of commoditization on the market.
Fabless semiconductor firms showed the transition to where the production of the waffers themselves became commoditized. Now we're seeing the CPU/GPU cores themselves have become the commodity.
This is further shown by there becoming more open cores available and getting used. Probably the next winners will be those who can customize open cores to match high end business applications.
Both the new XBox and PS5 use custom chips from AMD. Basically adjusting the buses and configuration of the cores on the chips. Apple is designing its own chips to match its requirements.
Wonder if that's the future of the semiconductor business. Fewer generic parts, but custom configuration of cores to match specific applications.
Really a shift back to when each chip was designed explicitly for a customer. But, a change that'll create winners and losers.
Bandcamp is waiving their revenue share and giving it to artists today. I took the opportunity to update my nerdcore collection.
For all the parents out there looking for some science material to balance out activities for your kids the Perot Museum has some fun experiments online.
We've also been using NOVA and Nature shows that are available at:
