Docs election


Tomorrow is the last day to vote for Fedora Documentation Steering Committee members. So, what are you waiting for? Vote! If you’ve already voted, thanks!

Accessibility is the cornerstone of science and open enquiry


Over the last few years, I’ve watched and worked with my wife as she has managed her chronic disease using the web as one of her tools. Recently I had a mental flash — a connection between her success with open enquiry of field-specific experts, how access to the originators of new science is a […]

Mental breaks while working at home


Over the years I’ve tried not to make a big deal out of being a remote employee, or remotee in Red Hat lingo. I’m a big proponent of distance work, and am now fairly experienced with the last seven years as a 100% telecommuter and distributed team member. But … the topic is a risky […]

We stayed overnight on Monday at a homeschoolmate’s brother-in-law’s house in Sacramento. Thanks, Dylan! With […]

Showing tonight on home science theater


Tonight I’m lining up these pages for some science video fun to watch with my girls. We’re looking for cool experiments to be inspired to try. Also, Malakai asked to see an old favorite we used to call “The Packet Movie” when she was three and four. Robert Krampf’s really cool science videos Warriors […]
