My kid has very strong feelings about the Moana soundtrack and it plays in our house almost constantly. It occurred to me that if she had a way of starting it herself, without needing an adult, then that would be the four year old equivalent of getting car keys or internet access for the first time. Who can imagine having such independence and power! So I made her a Moana button [with Amazon Dash and a Raspberry Pi]. [...]

I had some other buttons lying around, so I added them to our home-made jukebox. Everyone needs a Hamilton button in their living room :-)

Thread.
I would like to thank all of you for your spirit and intellect and energy in the Unity8 adventure. +Popescu Sorin, your videos of Unity8 have been the best way for me to see that dream take shape! I hope they continue to inspire desktop developers around the world. And the beauty of free software is that projects are bigger than people or companies.

Many elements of the code in the Ubuntu Phone project continue - snaps grew out of our desire to ship apps reliably and efficiently and securely, the unity8 code itself will continue to be useful for UBports and other projects. And the ideas that we have pushed for are now spreading too.

Finally, I should celebrate that Ubuntu consists of so many overlapping visions of personal computing, that we have the ability to move quickly to support the Ubuntu GNOME community with all the resources of Canonical to focus on stability, upgrades, integration and experience. That's only possible because of the diversity of shells in the Ubuntu family, and I am proud of all of our work across that full range.

For anyone who may be interested in 3-D printing prosthesis, you should check out En-able. They are a global network of volunteers who use 3-D printing to create and assemble devices for people who can not afford them. What the volunteers are doing is amazing and the community welcomes anyone, anywhere, looking to get involved and could especially use people who have their own 3-D printers, have access to one, or are knowledgeable on using them to contribute.

Is there a financial reward for the galactic travel guide mission? E.g. if I loaded up 500 tonnes and trekked to colonia, is there an immediate payoff separate to the tier reward?

Anyone up for some playtime tonight? I'm leery of going in the public servers until I've built up more of an insurance buffer, but solo play gets a little... Solo after a while.
