Nerd shirt. In contention for the nerdiest, or at least the most nerdy obscure, shirt I own.

please, donate to help the +GNOME Foundation defend its trademark against corporate bullshit.

the fact that Groupon is not backing down after infringing the +GNOME trademark so blatantly is mindboggling.
"GNOME" the trademark has been a familiar name for the past 17 years in the Free and Open Source Software community. The GNOME project has been a staple desktop for GNU/Linux and BSD desktops. It was the default desktop for Sun Microsystems workstation class machines, continues to be the default ...

Absolutely no blame on FreeElectrons.

+The Linux Foundation otoh...
 
Apparently, the Linux Foundation has not realized we're in 2014, and that video recording talks is now an expected thing for all technical conferences, just like having coffee or water during the breaks.

So, for those who are not able to come to the next Embedded Linux Conference, but were counting on videos to be posted online, here's the news: there won't be videos of this year's ELC conference.

As some of the people might know, +Free Electrons was, for a number of years, video recording ELC and ELCE conferences and putting the videos online for free. Since last year, we stopped doing that, because the Linux Foundation progressively took over this effort. At the last ELC, the Linux Foundation was recording two rooms, and we were recording two. At the last ELCE, we didn't record anything, and everything was put online by the Linux Foundation.

So, for the upcoming ELC next week, we were obviously assuming that they would record the talks: they did it at the last ELCE, and they didn't contact us about this.

Except that +Tim Bird contacted us.... yesterday, with the news that the Linux Foundation will not be doing any video recording effort at this year's ELC. Unfortunately with a 5 days notice before our departure for the US, it's way too late for us to organize all the hardware and logistics needed to video record ELC (especially as one of our camcorder got stolen during the last ELC...).

Why isn't the Linux Foundation interested in video recording talks? Do they fear that it could reduce the number of paying attendees to their conferences? Is there some other unknown reason? Or just lack of time? It isn't clear at all, but it is frustrating, for everybody: for attendees to the conference, because they will not be able to watch the videos of the talks they couldn't attend, for the speakers, because the impact of their talk is greatly reduced as it becomes completely limited to the audience in the room during the talk itself, and for the entire community, which looses a precious amount of useful embedded Linux content.

If you were interested by those videos, I would like to encourage you to speak up, and mail the Linux Foundation at events@linuxfoundation.org.

If this becomes true, it's just amazing!
Go Norway! 
Norway will ban the sale of all fossil fuel-based cars in the next decade, continuing its trend towards becoming one of the most ecologically progressive countries on the planet, according to reports.

Of course, you need to do that for all the different green fuels.
Though, speaking of EVs, their fuel will be a lot greener, especially in Norway. And I'd estimate that in most cases, burning fossil fuel in a power plant will be more efficient than refining it to petrol, transporting out to the had stations, and then burning of in your own car... 

Though, obviously, we still need to get more renewable energy everywhere.

As the article is written, it seems to be a clear GPL violation by Vmware... Let's see what the outcome will be.

Maybe this will make SELinux easier to understand...
 
I'm heading out to buy some crayons!
Dan Walsh had a great idea for explaining SELinux policy concepts in a fun way - creating an SELinux coloring book! He wrote up a script, I illustrated it using my Wacom in Inkscape on Fedora, and ...
