"Parliament also succeeded in convincing the Council of interoperability requirements for messaging services, meaning outfits such as WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger or iMessage will have to open up and interoperate with smaller messaging platforms"

Finally! I'm not holding my breath but they did mention an open protocol so fingers crossed. Now do this for social networks too :P


GitHub using all source-available code regardless of license (what they want to call public) to train their ML Copilot seems like an absolutely massive impending issue. Hopeful we get a true test and defense of OS licenses.


Congrats Danny on another great year of preschool! 2 pieces of cake and 2 freeze pops at the party to celebrate.

My poor wallet! So excited for these and even more so that the old frames may be perennial!

Our Easter Eggs, just a little bit late! Danny kept his "strawberry egg" in the longest.

Google beating Oracle today is a huge sigh of relief. I wish it wasn't just a narrow decision on fair use but had this gone the other way the entire FOSS industry would be in a horrible spot.


Can’t believe how big Danny is getting! James for scale (and cute, despite the grumpiness!).

Our first successful 3d print! It was way too cold in the room but the cover we got today kept everything warm.

Played school the other day and Danny said he needed "the blue thing" first. Bluey's dad always wears this when they play and I guess he picked up on it! 😛

New 10 terapixel photo of the night sky showing 1B galaxies viewer.legacysurvey.org, the scale of is just impossible to appreciate

Our little boy James was born on February 3! Beth is home but he needs a little longer at the hospital, can’t wait to bring you home too little man and for you to meet your wonderful big brother!

Just upgraded to 3.3. Unfortunately had to boost the droplet to 4GB of memory just to get through the asset precompile. Really hoping these heavy parts of the build process get fixed in a soonish release.

“I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time—when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority...” —Carl Sagan
