October marked the end of my work at Collabora, doing marketing and business development. I am quite sad to part ways with many talented and enjoyable people I’ve grown fond of, but that’s life and I’m sure our paths will cross again.
Need a passionate open-source project manager, interaction designer or business developer with great insight of open-source technologies and communities? Hit me up as nekohayo on IRC (FreeNode or GIMPnet) or by mail at nekohayo at gmail dot com.
The NSA/PRISM/big brother scandal of late didn’t surprise nor shock me. The discovery that “the NSA probably silently circumvents/broke all our crypto and hid backdoors everywhere” is not really a discovery to geeks who have given the whole system a bit of thought — spies are spying on us, and they’re not telling us that our GPG keys or disk encryption are not sufficient to guard against them? No sh**, Sherlock!
When you spend the vast majority of your spare time working on open-source software like Pitivi, sometimes you feel like hacking on hardware made of dead trees for a change. Dead trees have very few bugs unless you let them sit on the ground for extended amounts of time.
What was initially planned as a one-question referendum for Pitivi users (how critical is it for us to have perfect xptv import on the upcoming release) became a full-fledged survey to give us a clearer picture of what users care the most about these days. If you’re a fan of Free Software and video editing, please take a few seconds to fill this survey.
