Over the years, I met a number of people — trainers, speakers, hackers — who produce a lot of slide-ware (decks often more than a hundred pages wide), but never really use the conventional presentation packages for it. Instead, they script things,…

I still suspect we only got included because someone spelled "Austria" incorrectly on a form somewhere, but nevertheless this is a petition I'm happy to support.
It's inarguable that since 2004, Australia has been going downhill. In 2015, the downhill slide peaked with the our Prime Minister Tony Abbott inexplicably knighting Prince Philip, Tay Swizzle even having a chance at cracking the Hottest 100, and Australia being picked as an official competitor for the Eurovision Song Contest . Given Australia's proud, long and storied history of voting for incredibly stupid shit and somehow taking pride in it...

I'm sick of this shit in the tech industry.
I'm going to leave aside the possibility that this is a plot by someone else to ruin Justin D'Agostino's life by forging an email to Kelly Ellis, as I've seen similar sentiments posted too many times (i.e. more than never), and I'm fucking sick of it. Assuming for a moment that the egg-donor ...

Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales has slammed the federal government's data retention laws, saying:
"But this idea that the police should just be able to troll through people's data without any oversight is just fundamentally wrong. It's a human rights violation." [TR]
Metadata a "human rights violation" says Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales.

At linux.conf.au the other week, a friend asked if I'd ever considered a career writing a web comic. I forget exactly how it came up, but it might have had something to do with the STONTIH Deathmatch t-shirt I was wearing at the time, or may have been due to someone mentioning the talk Florian ...

What +Lars Marowsky-Brée said ;-)
 
+SUSE just opened 4 new job descriptions for work on our +Ceph based enterprise product. This is one of our fastest growing teams in the company (and these aren't going to be the last new positions), and I'm excited to be bringing it forward.

If you or any friend or colleague are interested in working on any aspect of Ceph itself, distributed storage, management / UI / deployment, radosgw and many other exciting technologies: please, do get in touch with me!

Home office is an option, our team is already globally distributed. Or come join us at one of our engineering sites. We're also looking to hire at multiple skill levels and would be glad to provide you an opportunity to improve yourself on this exciting technology - or offer you one of the senior engineering opportunities.

(We also opened about two dozen other positions today. Go check them out! I won't be posting any of the others to not come across as a spammer.)
