The dream we haven't dared to dream | Dan Pallotta Wednesday May 4th, 2016 02:52:37 PM (TED Conferences LLC)
What are your dreams? Better yet, what are your broken dreams? Dan Pallotta dreams of a time when we are as excited, curious and scientific about the development of our humanity as we are about the development of our technology. "What we fear most is that we will be denied the opportunity to fulfill our true potential," Pallotta says.

A provocative way to finance the fight against climate change | Michael Metcalfe Thursday April 28th, 2016 02:46:41 PM (TED Conferences LLC)
Will we do whatever it takes to fight climate change?

It's true: talking about menstruation makes many people uncomfortable. And that taboo has consequences: in India, three out of every 10 girls don't even know what menstruation is at the time of their first period, and restrictive customs related to periods inflict psychological damage on young girls. Growing up with this taboo herself, Aditi Gupta knew she wanted to help girls, parents and teachers talk about periods comfortably and without shame. She shares how she did it.

A recurring question I encounter is the question whether uinput or evdev should be the approach do implement some feature the user cares about. This question is unfortunately wrongly framed as uinput and evdev have no real overlap and work independent of each other. This post outlines what the differences are. Note that "evdev" here refers to the kernel API, not to the X.Org evdev driver. First, the easy flowchart: do you have to create a new virtual device that has a set of specific capabilities?

Hello, Today I was having a rough time thinking on how to implement the new GtkPathBar, which is taking more time and frustration than expected given some technological limitations on animations in gtk+ and that responsive design is technologically hard to do.

Havoc Pennington: Professional corner-cutting Wednesday May 4th, 2016 05:35:17 PM
Steve Jobs famously cared about the unseen backs of cabinets. Antique furniture built with hand tools isn’t like that at all. Cabinetmakers made each part to the tolerance that mattered. The invisible parts were left rough, with plane and saw marks, to save time. The visible parts, however, were cleaned up and polished. Some surfaces were made precisely straight and square, for structural reasons; while nonstructural surfaces were only straight enough to look good to the eye. Think about an apprentice in ...

Ronald Bultje: The world’s best VP9 encoder: Eve Monday May 2nd, 2016 10:50:24 AM
VP9 is a bit of a paradox: it offers compression well above today’s industry standard for internet video streaming (H.264 – usually created using the opensource encoder x264), and playback is widely supported by today’s generation of mobile devices (Android) and browsers (Chrome, Edge, Opera, Firefox). Yet many companies and people are wary of using VP9. I’ve blogged about the benefits of VP9 (using Google’s encoder, libvpx) before, and I keep hearing some common responses: libvpx is slow, libvpx ...

Breakfast and out to the hack-fest; had some fun helping people with tasks, code reading, etc. Spent some time unwinding why LibreOffice wouldn't compile in tr_TR.UTF-8 locale, a rather fun bug. Interestingly toupper('i') != 'I' in a tr_TR locale, cf. easy hack.
