Good article trying to counter predator scare with some rationality.
tl;dr: Most predators are more scared of you than you are of them, so leave them alone and you're fine.
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Do you really need to worry about animal attacks outdoors? Let’s look at the data and determine what you can do ...

This has me really excited!
Not of much use to me personally at this stage since I don't fly often, but the opportunities, oh, the opportunities!
Much of the stuff Google does, but without having to hand your data over to them - awesome!

Using your private data to extract relevant information is what Free Software should do, so we can enjoy the benefits without having to sacrifice our privacy.

Now we have to get +Aaron Seigo and +Christian Mollekopf and +Dan Vrátil lots of chocolate or coffee or beer or whatever makes them hyper-active, so we'll have Akonadi Next soon and can use this on our local data ;)
 
A side project which I started working on. So far we're only extracting the Flight Information, but there is so much more info we can get!

I'm not too convinced with calling the project `kde-now` though. Does anyone has any suggestions?
Last week I got decently annoyed by having to lookup my flight information before FOSDEM. Also, you always forget when your flight is afterwards. Google started "Google Now" which aims to provide useful information about current events through your Android...

Die wachsende Zahl der Tierfabriken ist schlimm genug für die Tiere, aber das interessiert ja offenbar leider zu wenige.
Aber wenn es an unsere Trinkwasserqualität geht, wird die Sache vielleicht schon für mehr Menschen wichtig.
Daher kann ich nur jedem an's Herz legen, die Petition zur schärferen Regulierung der Gülle-Ausbringung zu unterschreiben und weiterzuverbreiten!

For anyone who has even the slightest interest in action adventures, has a Windows computer for gaming available and does not own most of the games yet (like I do), the Legacy of Kain collection currently on the Humble Store for just €4,99 is an absolute must-buy!

Especially Soul Reaver and Soul Reaver 2 are absolute classics, but I had quite some fun with Blood Omen 2 and Defiance as well.

 Oh, you don't? Well, good for your wallet ;) But you do own at least some of those games (I mean, physically, on a disc), right?

In his typical British understated fashion, +David Edmundson shows us what to me is nothing short of a revolutionary step on the way to solve the old "Client-side decorations vs. server-side decorations" dilemma using a "best of both worlds" approach.
 
As we're all sharing photos from the sprint my window decorations have sliders in them. 

Arguably it's not /entirely/ useful to put a slider in every window decoration, it does show a a hook into the decoration API allowing apps to make use of the window decoration area even if it is drawn server side.

+Thomas Pfeiffer That sounds like a much better concept. Cool! Thanks for your explanation!

Today a typo made +David Edmundson and me aware that "changing" is just one letter apart from "hanging". Looking back in history, this totally makes sense!

Make whatever you want of these photos, but if you eat pork, don't tell me you can't stand looking at them.
Disclosure: I do sometimes eat pork. And I have read the whole article.
