We should try our hardest to cut off patent trolls from easy targets, and encourage university work to be rewarded with real commercial innovation instead.
When universities invent, those inventions should benefit everyone. Unfortunately, they sometimes end up in the hands of patent trolls, companies that serve no purpose but to amass patents and demand money from other innovators and inventors. Why are universities selling patents to trolls in the first place? Shouldn’t they sell their inventions to companies that will actually do something with them?

This is a rather compelling argument about the human condition in general, methinks...
 
This is a really interesting article and it really resonates with me and reflects something I would like to do with employment at elementary. I strongly believe that your job is far from the most important thing in your life. Spending time with your family, making new friends, going on adventures, discovering all life has to offer, love, art, learning. These things are important. Your job is only valuable insofar as it enables you to do these things. The fact is that jobs suck for everyone right now because employers don't believe that. They don't care about you the person. You're capital to them. And that sucks. And it especially sucks for people that are caregivers. Employers need to redesign. Restructure.

As a side note, I remember someone writing that "accessibility features are just features". It's in a similar vein as the thought, "gay marriage is just marriage". And I think what these people are trying to say is that good ideas are good for everyone. Flexible hours are good for everyone. Shared responsibility is good for everyone. Not having to work massive overtime is good for everyone. Not working in dangerous conditions is good for everyone. Good solutions to the gender wage gap problem are good solutions for all employees of all genders and lifestyles.
Women earn 79 cents on the dollar compared with men. But the gender wage gap is much, much more than one number.

The new long-term supported branch of Node.js, version 6.x, is coming soon to EPEL 7. Read why, and what this means to you, in the Fedora Magazine.
The long term supported Node.js 6.x stream will be appearing in EPEL 7 soon. Read this article to learn why, and what the change means to you.

So in the continued effort to make +Snapcraft work reasonably well on systems that are set up with SELinux, I've started making a small SELinux module to properly set up and confine snapd and friends.

It's currently targeted at Fedora and Debian, distributions that have SELinux integration enabled by default (though Debian does not load an SELinux policy by default for now).

Contributions welcome!

Day 1 of the +Ubuntu Snappy sprint begins... It'll be an interesting week, I think.

Plus, hey, first time in Germany! :)

»Flatpak is the new name for GNOME’s XDG-App initiative, though ‘…95% of the commits come from one Red Hat employee,’ Shuttleworth cheekily noted. ‘We would be delighted if they’d work with us.'« – Sorry +Mark Shuttleworth, but this is FUD.
1. flatpack currently has 29 different committers, most of them not Red Hat employees; one is even a Debian developer.
2. +Alexander Larsson has 78% of the commits, not 95%.
3. snappy has 5 only committers, all of them Canonical employees.
4. If you want people to help you with your snaps, don't require them to sign Canonical's CLA, open all snap components (including the server side) and stop spreading FUD in first place.

Kthybye.
Ubuntu’s Snap packages will now work on other Linux distros. Snapd, the tool powering them, has been ported to Arch, Gentoo and Fedora among others.
