In one of the first major speeches I gave about free software, I explained that "the difference between gold and freedom, is that the value of gold lies in its scarcity, whereas the value of freedom comes from its abundance". Diversity and inclusion are critical to Red Hat's ability to compete in the global marketplace. But this competitive advantage does not derive from making diversity and inclusion rare, but rather in making them universal. HB2 hurts Red Hat not because of any direct prohibition or prescription on how we as a business operate, but because it undermines diversity and inclusion generally, and specifically in the communities in which we live, work, learn, and play. The DoJ is standing up for those communities, and I am proud that Red Hat is now standing with the DoJ on this important matter.

so I wrote up my thoughts on this whole #snappy thing long-form:

https://www.happyassassin.net/2016/06/16/on-snappy-and-flatpak-business-as-usual-in-the-canonical-propaganda-department/

summary: snappy is +Canonical's attempt to build an app-store like mechanism for Linux. It is not remotely 'done' yet, in the sense their PR claims it is. It does not have anything like the cross-distribution buy-in their PR heavily claims it has. It is not going to replace apt or dnf. The packages for other distributions are half-assed and have half the claimed features of snappy disabled. Canonical made no bona fide attempt to build consensus behind their system before issuing a press release claiming it was all ready to take over the world. There is a competing system, #flatpak , which arguably has greater cross-distro buy-in at this point (though really, neither system has any significant support outside of its sponsors). But sure, aside from that, it's all true!

I couldn't make the security summit due to giving a talk in the Plumbers conference about Android kernel stuff, but here's the video +Konstantin Ryabitsev played at the end of it.

For a good summary of the security summit, see this writeup by Paul Moore:
