I think this is a great idea.  If you're involved with an #Ubuntu  LoCo Team, you should let them know what you're doing and maybe join them on one of their hangouts.

With Nelson Mandela and his health being in the news as of recent, I thought it would be a good idea to share this video for people who might not have run Ubuntu back in the brown days of Ubuntu when it was included in the distro.

Very nice to see an article showing the San Diego Mayor continuing to build relationships with Tijuana Mexico and making our ties stronger through many efforts such as attempting to make it easier to get into the states.

“It might make people from Iowa feel better knowing that it takes hours to cross the border, but a better approach is to fix the border so it functions for legitimate purposes. Right now we’re just penalizing ourselves with huge inefficiencies.”

Mayor Bob Filner sees the border as a potential economic engine for the region, a remarkable shift in a city once viewed as a hotbed for illegal immigration.

Thinking about getting one of those Ubuntu bicycling jerseys and just wearing that when I give my Ubuntu talk at Texas Linux Fest in just over a month. Might attract the crowd.

This year, I will continue my tradition of sending out Christmas cards to anyone I have worked with in the Open Source world this past year. If you would like to receive one feel free to comment below with your address or email me at philipballew@ubuntu.com with the subject “christmas card” and include your address so I can send you one. I only have Christmas cards, so if you do not celebrate Christmas, there is no need to feel left out as the cards are just a way of me saying thanks, so please reply as well!

Why are you hacking your neighbor's wifi?
That's rude.

If Arrested Development works with Netflix tonight, I will take back everything bad I have ever said about WINE.
