Good bye, good riddance. That's not a political opinion, albeit I thought her Planned Parenthood stance was despicable. No, my bottom-line problem was that I knew her and covered her career at Lucent and HP. Knowing what I knew of her, I wouldn't trust to organize a bake sale, never mind a major company or our country.
The former Hewlett-Packard briefly surged in polls following strong early debate showings.

Fiorina shouldn't be allowed to terminate her campaign early. She should be required to bring it to full term.

I had no idea there was a new Trek coming.  Set on the Reliant?  That should mean we'll get to see Ensign Jean-Luc Picard, if it's the 24th century one.

+James Kendrick has talked me into giving it a try. 
As Amazon regularly adds new functionality, the Echo continues to grow more useful. In fact, it's now the most-used gadget in my home.

Perfect score for me. I was a little surprised, though perhaps I shouldn't have been, that I personally know pretty much everyone who was mentioned. 
 
Would you like to test your knowledge of the people of FOSS? Take our quiz. We have eighteen questions, each concerning a person considered to be a leader in the FOSS world. Have we left anyone out? You betcha — starting with you. The way we see it, each and every one of us, whether we merely use FOSS at home, work to keep FOSS software maintained or fight the good fight to keep free tech free, is equally as important.
The FOSS Force Quiz How well do you know the people behind the different FOSS communities? Do you know the names of the people who are behind the software we use daily? Would you recognize the faces of the people who fight to keep free software free by helping enforce the GPL or by working [...] Continue reading How Well Do You Know the People of FOSS?

And, in case you didn't know, it won't cost you one thin dime.
The new LibreOffice release has improved its looks and added even more interoperable features.

Of course what I really want is the Tesla Model S P90D with the Ludicrous upgrade, but  I don't have that kind of money. The base model Tesla Model 3 at  $35,000 however...

I'll be speaking at the Great Wide Open conference in Atlanta on 
on March 16 and 17th. There also will be far more interesting open-source folks, such as Jim Jagielski, Mark R. Hinkle, and Danese Cooper, speaking. I hope to see you there.

Wow, no Apple despite that post a couple of months claiming they were some of the first to embrace open source in the industry...

Poor joking aside, I wish I could be there. Sadly I just don't have the cash to travel that far.

I hope you enjoy it :)

 I wish I'd written this.

Apple software has long been second-rate. Is there anyone who really like iTunes? MobileMe/iCloud? But, it's gotten so bad lately that even the Apple fanbois can't stand it anymore.
There always have been two great virtues in Apple 's policy of keeping the development of hardware and core software in-house: their seamless integration with each other and their quality.

Lady Gaga's Super Bowl take on the Star Spangled Banner. From what I understand it was easily the best performance of the night.

Well, the Denver defense had a pretty spectacular day as well. I do think the anthem beat the halftime show hands down, though.
