Although I hope kwin is customizeable enough so that it can be not overly flashy. Being KDE I think it will be able to.

This is one of the many reasons scopes rock.
 
Yay!
Today I created a scope for Ubuntu phone called Softpedia Linux Twitter and the process is incredibly simple, not to mention the fact that the publishing procedures are easy to follow and amazingly fast.

Maybe not NearBy, but Today is largely made up of user data, so is the photos scope. I would imagine in the future Music and Videos aggregating scopes will become more connected to user accounts on remote services too.

Scopes are good for content discovery, but they're not made for content consumption, for that they will open either an app or a website. So weather.com can provide basic data to a scope, and then when you click on tomorrow's you go to their website or app, which has their ads, to get the full set.

I gave a pretty frank presentation a few weeks back about my experience with Ubuntu and what it was like through some of the most interesting times in Ubuntu's history. See it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vi9OnotrDX4&t=1h02m16s - apologies for the poor audio quality, this was the live stream.

Forget Ubuntu One, Bazaar, Launchpad, Unity and the Ubuntu Phone: upstart was the piece of Ubuntu engineering that seems to have had the most impact on Linux distros.

Yesterday was a good day for the internet: #llamadrama and the dress. Today the Internet got a hangover: spock is dead.
