xf, Spotlight may have been inspired by Beagle, a descendant and outgrowth from Dashboard. Nat Friedman demonstrated it at GUADEC in Kristiansand, Norway last month... SIX HOURS before Steve Jobs demonstrated Spotlight. At least we got to make it public first. :-)

I guess this is one of the challenges of having ex-GNOME hackers working for Apple. :-)

Herbert's resignation demonstrates why GNOME doesn't ship flags at all. Herbert is a reasonable guy, who lives only a few kilometres away from me in Sydney, and happens to have a more personal, deeply-held perspective on the China/Taiwan issue than many of us. I guess I don't share his belief, but it should not affect our shared vision here — the progress of Free Software.

If your Free Software project only has a single, global release — and that's pretty much all of us — you should strongly advocate the removal of flags and other national symbols. These are not logical right-and-wrong debates. They're personally and nationally held beliefs that we simply can't solve as Free Software contributors.

Live on, fight the battles you can win.  #

Computer World gives GNOME the thumbs up: "But I'm finding that Linux, especially with GNOME, is a lot more user friendly than the Unix I remember. [...] There are probably people in your organization right now who could become more productive with Linux and GNOME on their desktop. Maybe you need to find out more about it."

IBM is expanding their Linux Technology Centre in Canberra. More geeks in our capital city is a good thing.

Hooray, Tridge is toking the LDAP pipe! First things I think about when hearing this are Evolution and GPE... "As many of you know Samba now has a new database system called 'ldb'. ldb is like a half-way house between LDAP and tdb. [...] Of course, ldb can already act as a front-end to LDAP, presenting a LDAP database via the ldb API, so admins will have a number of flexible options for how to configure Samba."

Both Luis and Seth found this summary of Fedora's first year worth pointing out. When Fedora was first announced, I was so excited - I thought Red Hat had their strategy sorted, and were going to roll out the project like a blitzkrieg red carpet... But it seems they're still struggling. I hope they can pull it off.

I only have a few name-clones around the web, and I certainly have the best Google-juice of the lot, but here's one particularly surprising Jeff Waugh I found on Google Images. A beefy afro-american footballer... If he's not Bizarro me, I don't know who is. Hi, Jeff!

In February, the ACS came out with a hasty and ill-conceived response to the US/Australia Trade Agreement, but has come to its senses after consulting with the OSEG crew. The Australian picked this up with ACS flip-flops on FTA. Hopefully a bit of PR stick will encourage them to be more informed next time.  #

So, we've been joking for ages about putting 'branded' hackergotchi icons up on Planet GNOME, for a day's irony-riddled prank value. However, I get the impression that this new I am "campaign" was borne more of a sugary sweetness-like-corn-syrup than gonzo-style sweetness-and-light... :-)

The above link has a very U.S. oriented analysis of corn syrup, by the way. The rest of the world mostly uses real sugar. The corn subsidies are a huge problem for the U.S., another corporate-interest travesty.  #

Friends, lovers, partners and warriors... We are engaged to be married. :-)  #

Who you gonna call?

So there was some joking around on IRC about XUL and Ghostbusters... Without any reflection on ZUUL being the ultimate enemy, just that XUL was a cool name. ;-) But it reminded me of a thought I had during the meeting, when the word was being thrown around a lot...

We're crossing the streams. We're crossing the streams!

Egon: I have a radical idea. The door swings both ways. We could reverse the particle flow through the gate.
Peter: How?
Egon: We'll cross the streams.
Peter: Excuse me, Egon, you said crossing the streams was bad.
Ray: Cross the streams...
Peter: You're gonna endanger us, you're gonna endanger our client. The nice lady who paid us in advance before she became a dog.
Egon: Not necessarily. There's definitely a very slim chance we'll survive.
Peter: I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it. Let's do it!
Winston: This job is definitely not worth eleven-five a year!
Egon: Hurry!
Peter: See you on the other side, Ray.
Ray: Nice working with you, Dr. Venkman.

And for the record, I love this plan! I'm excited to be a part of it. Let's do it!  #
