Preseeding installations
In early February, I completed a move from Canonical's Phonedations team to the Foundations team. Part of this new work means debugging a lot of different failure cases in the installer, grub, and other early boot or low-level sofware, some of which requiri...

My article on encouraging women and girls in Open Source went live over (my) night. I talk a bit about what helped me and offer 10 tips for women, girls and everyone to get involved with Open Source.

I talk about +Ubuntu Women Project +WoMoz +GirlsWhoCode and more!
Getting started with contributing to open source can be tricky, so the following is a list of suggestions I have as a women in the community for other women and girls out there to make it easier.

Is it just me or comparing an ISP with reported speeds starting at 3mbps with another with reported speeds up to 30mbps in a radio ad is a bit misleading?

exactly that. I think it was selling some ISP in the US, compared to DSL ISPs... Keeping in mind that we get some radio stations here in Canada from south of the border, but unfortunately I can't remember the name of the ISP.

I got this via my friend Marc-André on Facebook: https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/. Nicely made infographic!
Logical fallacies are often sneakily used by politicians and the media to fool people. Don't be fooled! This website has been designed to help you identify and call out dodgy logic wherever it may raise its ugly, incoherent head.

have used it for some time, and it helps -- mostly when you get in a discussion where the other party is willing to learn.

That team is full of rockstars. This is one of the best places to apply for truly challenging, but truly fun and rewarding work (at least from my outsider point of view). If you feel you want to challenge yourself and do awesome things in Ubuntu, this is where you should apply (and I'd even consider it myself) :P
 
My team at Canonical is hiring!  Interested in an exciting career working with superstars like +Colin Watson and +Michael Vogt solving the hard problems of distribution integration in Ubuntu?  Come say hi at DebConf14 :)
Role summary. The Ubuntu Foundations Team is responsible for delivering the core Ubuntu system that the whole Ubuntu family of products and services is built upon. Applicants should be passionate about the future of Ubuntu, and able to work in a globally distributed team of engineers who share ...

This:

"I also believe that people can grow up. They can change. They can learn empathy. I did it. My methods might not work for everyone; for me it took having kids, getting a job that required some humility and some service, and losing people in my life that I truly loved. It require perspective, and you can't exactly bottle that. So maybe the folks who are up in arms now about "ethics in games journalism" - the ones who really believe that that's actually a thing, that the harassment and the threats, like, didn't happen or something, that believe that their favorite video games are actually under some kind of threat, maybe what they need is a little time and a little exposure to the biomass and a little perspective."

I didn't know the soldier who was killed; but it's a great loss for Canada, and for peace. If only we could soon get past fights over territory, religion, race and everything.
 
The cartoon basically hits me right in the feels.
A Canadian cartoonist has created the perfect tribute to Nathan Cirillo, the soldier shot dead while guarding Ottawa's National War Memorial on Wednesday morning.

DebConf has been really fun so far; there are tons of very interesting talks on various subjects -- if you're interested in seeing the talks that were done so far: http://meetings-archive.debian.net/pub/debian-meetings/2014/debconf14/webm/; everything is streamed so you can also tune in at https://wiki.debconf.org/wiki/DebConf14/Videostream and have a say on IRC.

That's really encouraging me to put more time in contributing to Debian directly as I do in Ubuntu.

In other news, anybody interested in helping out set up a proposal for having a future DebConf in Montréal?

I don't think anyone can argue against the fact that to be an effective developer, you need to somehow attain sufficient focus to fully take in the task at hand, and be sufficiently in the zone that answers to the problem at hand come naturally. In a way, p...
