"That guy I quoted above, the one who wrote Janelle that loathsome communiqué? He was right about one thing. Men are the cure — but we are the cancer too. It is wholly and rightfully and crucially up to men in this society and especially in this subculture to speak out and watch out. To end the cycle of bullying, harassment and violence. To recognize the grotesque irony of degrading women over matters of heroic fictions whose lessons about fairness and decency we’ve supposedly been studying since we were just little boys, and to start putting those ideas into practice as grown-ass men."

Heading home from Libreplanet. It was a great conference, and I had many fascinating and constructive conversations with friends new and old. Many thanks and kudos to the fsf for putting together such a great conference!

That moment, when your (non-geek) husband discovers just how addictive text-based games can be. And he cease to be able to make fun of you for playing MUDs. :D

Is it possible to get a Nexus 4 or 5 running on Verizon's network?

Day three of my Free Software class is over :) Succesfull install of Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 on one laptop completed, and by the sounds of it, at least one or two others are seriously considering installing :) 

Also talked about contributing to Wikimedia today, and Google Code-In which at least a couple of them will be eligible for next year, which they were all interested in :)

I wrote a personal blogpost on the MediaGoblin campaign, and why I think it matters:
http://dustycloud.org/blog/mediagoblin-campaign-2014/

There's a bit of stuff in there that I was worried "maybe it's a bit too blunt/correct", and of course, me posting here just proves my point on certain ironies ;)

  "To put it another way: when even the most prominent internet activist campaigns are using Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter to complain about the centralization effects those very services help to perpetuate, it shows you how much we need ways to communicate that aren't part of the problem. And that's exactly what we're working on with MediaGoblin."

We were also covered in Linux Pro Magazine:

But what more suitable a use for Facebook and Google+ than to promote a better alternative?
