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.

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.]
