People person, technology enthusiast and all-things-open evangelist. I have managed and marketed communities for over a decade, getting started in the KDE community, followed by working as openSUSE Community Manager at SUSE and now managing community matters at ownCloud. I'm busy growing the ownCloud community, speaking at and organizing conferences and writing about my passions ranging from psychology and people in communities to innovative technology. I take care of my dog together with my wife in beautiful Berlin and you can find me also on Twitter and Diaspora!

It taught me some scary stuff. No, not about the bad things the Nazi's did - l knew that already. But it gave an idea of how Hitler and his group rose to power. And THAT was scary.
Far from grabbing power and leading a reluctant nation to war, he much profited from a legal framework build for him by his political predecessors. A framework meant to limit violence by giving government and courts extraordinary power to fight the 'bad people'.
Guess why I wonder if, 50 years from now, our grand children will similarly wonder how we didn't see 'it' coming and how we could be so stupid to, collectively, allow our governments to build a surveillance state ready for the next Hitler to grab and use for new wars.
I think the field of 'user experience design' which mashes up usability and design has a fundamental issue in that regard. Then again, letting a single person with skills in both areas create the UI makes sense, so I won't say it is a bad solution. But I often feel there's more focus on 'pretty' than 'usable' and they are often conflated... Perhaps more usability people need to get design classes rather than designers learning usability?
This is as transformative as the first Pi, both due to price and size, enabling a whole host of new projects!
I like that. next up: Gimp and Inkscape, the last two GTK apps I have to use. Though I'm not sure if Gimp will ever move ;-)
As long as wireshark doesn't start looking horrible on gnome, i'm okay with that.
Now you might not want to take that literally, that's fair - but you can't say you follow Jesus and justify flying a private jet while people die of hunger or can't afford health care in your own country. And that's not even talking about people outside the US.
I'd say, if you say Republicans are good Christians, ISIS members are, too.
That's my religion-and-politics for the week.
Sorry josh, not my words, but those of the bible. I happen to agree with you about taking care of family and such, but it just shows how you have to apply human morals to the bible and basically ignore most of what it says or re-interpret it (like you did there), because a literal reading will make you believe and do terrible things. It is after all written by desert-dwelling goat herders in the Copper Age (OT) and Jesus didn't change a thing (Matthew 5:18-19, Luke 16:17, Matthew 5:17, 2 Timothy 3:16, Mark 7:10, etc.) On a side note: he even made things worse by introducing hell, which didn't exist in the Old Testament.

Please report lots of bugs and give me a few "hints" on what I should work on for the next version
Social Media vs. Community Management - What's the Difference? -
Which is right for your business: A Social Media Manager or a Community Manager, or both? Here's a breakdown of both roles:

all mine!: On Innovation, Free Software, NIH, Geary, Trojita and KDE PIM
I argue that if Free Software wants to get anywhere, it needs a culture of 'collaboration first'. In most areas, we have that. In some, we d
