Some people are writing blogs on Advogato about general topics, but recently I turned to the opinion that you should only, or at least mostly, write about your open-source projects at Advogato. So I will try not to write anymore about politics, science in general, or personal things. Unfortunately that means there is nothing to write now since I have not been working much on my open-source projects for various reasons. One reason is that I have to do so much "serious" work, you know what I mean. Another is that some of the projects have reached a stage where a boring programming task at hand. And perhaps the most important reason is that I just can't find the right people to join a project. Working alone on open-source is a thing to avoid to my opinion. You need another project team member who is willing to read your source code (Python in my case) and who preferably has a more or less the same programming style as you do; somebody to discuss things with; somebody who can test your ideas; somebody who can keep you from diving into something silly; and most important of all somebody to join the fun with, to share the proud feeling when you've created something that works.
Oh well, enough serious work to do.
