As I was walking out out of my building, the young girl who lives a couple of doors down told me that someone stole the family's welcome mat. 10 minutes later, I was buying some NyQuil and was told by the cashier the registers now ask for the customer age (must be over 18) because of "the woman who killed her son with cough medicine." If this is how we live in peaceful (and still relatively prosperous) conditions, may the Fates have pity on us.

This is awesome. There's a video too.

If you are not a regular listener of Quirks & Quarks, then you missed out on (what I find to be) a fascinating story with interesting implications: "Locked In, But Not Out."

"...what that meant was that you never had to go sprinting across campus to go pick up you paper, or worry that your hard drive's going to crash, because that was the whole point. It's all taken care of for you. It's always available."

Would be neat if we could do this in GNOME: Sit down at any GNOME 3 box, log in, and have our settings and files.

For some reason I don't find these news in any other source in Google News.

I wish I could point to a woman who was my role model or mentor or "guiding light" who inspired me to become who I am today. But the reality is that free software is still a realm of mostly men. And whilst I have female peers for whom I have a great deal of respect and admiration, they are my peers; not my role models. Having said that, and given that I am about to embark on an exciting new career in free software, I do want to thank +Rich Burridge who for several years was my role model and mentor within GNOME and without whose guidance this new career would not be possible. I will do my very best to pay Rich's gift to me forward to other women in free software.

This totally made my day: "indicated you are a Colleague at Igalia". I am an Igalian. Yay!! :-) (No, the excitement has NOT worn off yet.)

Exactly.
RT @mike_dory: Today's summary: Facebook has overhauled profiles, applications, and their platform!

Oh also, CERN broke the speed of light. Whatever.
