If our homes are going to be filled with smart connected boxes with microphones that are always listening, then I'd much rather those boxes were open and updatable. Go Mycroft!
 
If it reaches its funding goal, Mycroft, the open AI project, will ship with snappy Ubuntu core. It's only 7 days until the end of the campaign - you can help foster innovation and support open technologies with your pledge!
Joshua Montgomery is raising funds for Mycroft: An Open Source Artificial Intelligence For Everyone on Kickstarter! Uses natural language to control Internet of Things. Built on Raspberry Pi this whole home A.I. plays media, controls lights & more.

We need to meet the stretch goal and have Mycroft Ubuntu's installed-by-default AI assistant. Alas, Kickstarter does not accept Discover (much like the Canonical store), so I cannot contribute.

Three new Fellows setting out to change the world; welcome!

Better modern academic publishing processes, a collective response to inhumane and predatory lending by powerful financial institutions, and breakthroughs in open government data are all causes I'm proud to support.

The best way to learn OpenStack is just to do it.
 
Ubuntu Openstack Installer deploying, in a fully orchestrated manner, Kilo to a single system both from the Ubuntu Openstack Cloud Archive and from the upstream stable branch (stable/Kilo).

Thank you!. Was looking for a way to keep on updating myself but on a single system.

Dig in to the lightervisor- a hypervisor that's pure container - with Team LXD. Faster, denser, lighter!
 
Here are some links to the talks my team will be giving about containers and LXD at #ContainerCon  2015 in Seattle, WA.

We'll also be demoing LXD at the Ubuntu booth throughout the event.

Come see us there!

Spectacular ideas and scenery coming together at Sketching in Hardware, IoT imaginarium hosted at Biosphere2. Always wanted to visit this science site, delighted to be doing it with so many insightful thinkers on hardware, innovation, design and entrepreneurship.

Ah, if MeshBlu is a software library / service that people integrate into their device / app then you probably want to look at "snapcraft" parts (think of apt-get for source code) and snappy frameworks (for a daemon that many apps on a device might talk to).

Mark,
Does Canonical have any information regarding Ubuntu phones being available in the US? I'm interested in building apps (not scopes) but would like real world performance metrics.
Thanks,
Shawn B.

According to a dear old relative growing up, to 'trump' was to fart loudly with the beatific self-assuredness that comes with reaching a certain age.

Anybody else familiar with the term?

Anybody else smell a little santorum on the way?

Real, reproducible benchmarks of real workloads on public clouds... check.

With public infrastructure services now mainstream, the real question isn't if you should be using the cloud, it's which cloud, and for which workloads. A lot of that is policy - contracts, security, jurisdictions. But a lot of it is pure engineering economics - how much bang are you going to get for your buck on each cloud.

cloud-benchmarking.org is a public repository of reproducible benchmarks for popular workloads. It's unusual in that the workloads are defined as usable juju charms; that means you can spin them up from scratch at scale yourself, you can trust that the results will reflect your actual usage, and there are no little gotchas encoded in special images that are hand-tuned and unrealistic. You genuinely can spin up the same topology of services at scale on any cloud you might care about, and verify the results yourself. Then you can share your results and add to the pool of public knowledge about real workload performance across the public infrastructure services.

Awesome, useful work.
or how we created cross-cloud tunable, repeatable benchmarks for everybody. by Adam Israel. tl;dr - We achieved better Cassandra performance on GCE vs. Amazon, at close to half the cost. When we decided to start the process of benchmarking across different clouds, Cassandra stood out as a great ...

This is 'Hana Fusa', and a favourite stop for Claire and me when we're visiting Kyoto. Have to recommend the bacon sandwich. Enjoy the coffee so much that I felt inspired to take a siphon home!
