Looks like I'll need to get my Christmas food poisoning elsewhere. 
Most of our restaurants will close early Christmas Eve and all day on Christmas. Confirm details with your local restaurant, and we'll see you again on the 26th. Happy holidays!

Google Photos autogenerated movie of my trip to Alcatraz last year. Neat.

Firmware should never be upgradeable in just software. A simple jumper or switch should be required to write firmware in all devices.

The first step in making the world you want is to behave in line with that vision. Mark apparently doesn't understand that, having spent the last years creating schism after schism in the Linux desktop world, from Mir to Unity to making their own QML API from scratch and developing a mobile UX behind closed doors separate from work being done in the broader community, he is now suggesting that all the desktop projects should work together towards a common goal.

You first, Mark. You've adopted systemd, and that's a nice step ... how about the rest of the separate silo Canonical stack? Example: Get behind Wayland and you'll have automatically given all the desktop projects a common goal, since the rest of them are already there just waiting for you.

To be honest, the way I read it, what Mark really wants is everyone to use and develop for what his team has dreamed up. That would also accomplish his proposal, I suppose. It would be just like when he was trying to convince every project to adopt not just a 6 month cycle but the same 6 month cycle that Ubuntu was championing. "You change to be just like me and then we'll get along amazingly well," is a common mantra for Mark.

Disappointment does not quite start to describe my feelings about this call to arms. It's the right message, but delivered by someone who does not follow it at all.

Going to #PyCon in Montreal in 4 days! Let me know if you want to meet up. #python
