Impure Art · Herewith two pretty outdoor-summer shots, one featuring a humble spoon. Dear reader, my motives are not entirely pure; I have in my hands a beta release of an actual Atom 1.0 newsreader, and, well, yes, I’m debugging. But still, that spoon shot is one of my prettiest ever, I think ...
Speaking of Ecosystems · As noted previously Drupal had a little trouble, and the community rallied around: individuals to the tune of over $10,000 and my employer with a server. So, I note that to build out their infrastructure, Drupal is going to use the community donations to buy Dell boxes. Um, let’s see here; IBM and Sun invest in Open Source, big-time. HP’s there too. Dell... uh, Dell? Ecosystem? Community? There’s something wrong with this picture. [Update: It turns out that Dell has been taking good care of these guys, and that’s a good argument. But I’d still like to bring them into the ecosystem. As for those pricing issues, there’s something really wrong with that picture.]
