I made a simple video demonstrating why I consider most EDM/electropop to be insufferable.

Really happy about the steady work +Georges Basile Stavracas Neto has been doing to bring us a proper calendar application for +GNOME - I've been waiting for that since 2004! I'm a tough user to please on that front (there are just so many features I need to have to consider any such tool for daily use), and GNOME Calendar is getting a bit closer with every release ;)
Today, the Calendar Team had the first meeting in history. Isaque, Lapo, Renata, Vamsi and I attended it, and the meeting was extremely productive! In fact, we were able to sketch out the general d…

Here's a summary of what we've been up to in the +GNOME Board of Directors over the past year.
Hi! Long time no see. My blog has been pretty quiet in recent months, in the big part due to my extended commitment on the GNOME Foundation's Board of Directors (for a second year without an executive director present to take some of the load) and the various business engagements I've had.

2016 is not over yet! There's still time to implement this feature even though implementing it might require the feature to already be implemented!
So while I always keep myself focused towards the future (I do not dwell in the past, as you may have seen in bug #700662), there are times where there just isn't enough time left to land every deliverable you promised for a given month. With months typically hardcoded to a mere 30-31 days in ...

issue is, if one is to add too much days to the past we might not be able to reach present anymore.
Since rationale is not to disapoint people, you might as well show your skills constantly releasing new versions every single commit.

GNOME Calendar 3.22.1 is shaping into a beautiful app, thanks +Georges Basile Stavracas Neto! The wishlist of "things I need before I can use it fulltime" is getting thinner ;)

Marketing genius from Hydro Québec: with a simple prize worth $40K, we estimate that they've already saved a minimum of 400-800k in annualized costs, in a week, by enticing customers to switch to online billing.

Organized the GNOME Summit: check.
With a change of attendees comes a change of the nature of the event: instead of being an extremely technical, “deep end of the pool” event as it has been in the past, this edition will be focused on newcomers and potential contributors, with presentations and workshops targetted for this ...

Why not extend GNOME to +BeWelcome? It might be useful for some of our events & gatherings, or just to visit one another when we're touring around. So I created a group for this (shamelessly using the old timers' logo)

My #GUADEC 2016 retrospective!
I went there for the 2016 edition of GUADEC: 2016-08-17--21.35.31. I arrived a couple of days early to attend my last GNOME Foundation board meeting, in one of the KIT's libraries. The building's uncanny brutalist architecture only added to the nostalgia of a two years adventure coming to an end ...
