If you were on the fence about attending CLS this year, this is all the reason you should need to go. +Jorge Castro is an amazing person and an incredible community leader.
Delighted to have Jorge Castro from Heptio and Kubernetes keynoting the Community Leadership Summit in July (the weekend before OSCON in the same venue in Portland). This is a FREE event but registration is required: http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/ - join us!

https://flathub.org/ has a brand new website that lets you search, browse and install Flatpak apps right from the website!

The data is automatically updated from the Flathub repo, including pulling screenshots from the AppStream data, so it's always up to date. Check out all the apps that are available.

Really happy to have +Mozilla Thunderbird available in Flathub so I can switch back to using it. I'm not sure what happened to Geary but in a recent update it started consuming astronomical amounts of ram.

My friend +Swapnil Bhartiya and I are starting a new show about the Open Source and Maker cultures, with in depth discussions about technology and projects that anybody can start using. Share with us your own experiences and ideas you want us to talk about in future episodes!
Joining forces with +Michael Hall to create a new show around Open Source and maker's culture. This is the pilot episode of the 'yet to be named' show. The idea behind the pilot is to get viewer's feedback. PS: Everything that you see on my wall is 3D printed on a fully open source printer :)

So Samsung is coming out with a phone that will give a full Linux desktop when docked, and the new iPhone ditched the button for edge-swipe gestures. It's good to see the legacy of the Ubuntu Phone still having an impact on the industry.

Oh, and if you want those things now without having to drop several hundred USD on a new phone, you should check out +UBports and see if they have a port to your existing device.

My brain is really struggling to accept that this is a real picture that hasn't been photoshopped or anything.
