People person, technology enthusiast and all-things-open evangelist. After studying organizational psychology, dabbled with buzzwords like 'lean', 'six sigma' and 'open innovation' in business consulting until spare time obsession turned into a full-time job as community manager. First at SUSE, now ownCloud and continuing an decade long involvement in the KDE community. Enjoys avoiding traffic and public transport on bike through Berlin, but only when the weather is good. Loves cooking for friends and family and playing with our dog.

Assange might or might not have done something wrong in Sweden - but I can't understand why the Swedish wouldn't want to simply send a cop to the Ambassy of Equador and let him talk to Assange so they can actually file the charges - if it wasn't for them insisting he come in person to Sweden which, unsurprisingly, has an extradition request from the US government ready to go.
Either sending a cop to talk to him at the embassy or promising him no extradition would solve the problem - he'd be able to go to stand trial for what he has or hasn't done. If that was really the highest priority for Sweden, he really wouldn't have been in the Equadorian Embassy for 2 years now...
* at least in my use - there are so many combinations of storage & mail/groupware servers I'm sure some still suffer from problems - the curse of being a can-do-all groupware client.
yes, on slow connections Akonadi isn't doing that well. But at least it has been reliable and fast on a decent connection for a few releases now, that is a big step forward. I fully expect the problem with bad connectivity on weak connections to be dealt with too.
The 810 is quite a disappointment, at least its current incarnation in the HTC One M9. Which is a shame, I'm looking for a replacement for my M7 and the one feature I want for sure is front facing stereo speakers. Not going back to being forced to use headphones all the time.
That was one heck of a long and deep analysis, though, and a interesting read. Keep it up and perhaps next time you're right ;-)

I personally hope Inkscape and the Gimp, if they port over, at least won't suffer from it. Sure, porting costs time and effort which otherwise could be put in improvements users care about - but as long as the file dialogs don't get even worse than the GTK2 one (what a horror) and CSD doesn't come and ruin user experiences, I can keep using them.
Oh, and, as I do like at least some of the UI concepts in these apps mentioned in the mail linked earlier - let me say I'm delighted to read this in the conversation:
"For some applications we could also look at what's being produced in other circles and see how to participate to existing apps instead of starting or reviving our owns (Yorba, Elementary, or other small and independent projects like lollypop)."
I might be a romantic, but I believe that collaboration across borders of projects is a healthy thing (standing on the shoulders of giants and all that) and I hope the GNOME devs will consider it. That can bring the fruits of some of their design efforts to a wider audience, rather than letting it go to waste.
Actually, I don't understand what the fuss is about here, and how this comment is sexist. Using biological processes as an argument against a gender is sexism, yes. But pointing out that from a bio-psychological perspective, this is the best time for Hillary to become president isn't exactly discriminating against anyone.
Biological processes do affect psychological processes to a tremendous degree, often much much more than we'd think. This is a scientific fact. Condemning anyone for talking about it is denying science. There are countless examples of this in psychology.
Discriminating against anyone based on biological arguments is ethically wrong and should never be done, but that wasn't the case here.
Oh and since it's mentioned there: I am very sure that erectile dysfunction would have an impact on a male president's leadership.
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:

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
