By @KyleSamani, a post on token distribution models, including @LivePeerOrg's merkle-mine approach: "We encourage every team that’s building a layer-2 token or a PoS blockchain to consider some permissionless way for passionate community members to participate that’s not an ICO"  Permalink

Stage 1 of pulled pork. Who says you can’t cook when business traveling?  Permalink

"Vigorous copyleft serves not just the currently underserved among open source contributors, but the open source movement as a whole, by preserving the broad base that made it relevant to begin with."

Leftover potato dumplings that get sliced up and pan fried in a little duck fat are pretty delicious.  Permalink

Amazing interactive, participatory experience with @kidkoala tonight: Satellite, with us as Turntable Orchestra. That’s @rachaelashe flicking the fader.  Permalink

A great thought experiment by @erlend_sh on how to evolve funding for #opensource, specifically for infrastructure where "SaaS or open core" won't work: The Fair Share Clause, sort of like Fairtrade certification for software.  Permalink

We’re meeting next Tuesday, Oct 9th, at 6pm, in #Vancouver to talk #indieweb websites, wikis, and podcasting. @patdryburgh @rtanglao are coming. Maybe @stv @owenmead @apike. Leave a comment if you’re coming.  Permalink

Caught up with @Stv who is doing great work in his new role at TELUS in #Vancouver. He is building awesome Node / React teams tackling some really big systems across Canada.  Permalink

Post installation of the @KnowRoaming Global SIM "sticker". It goes on over the contacts on your existing SIM card. Going to be doing some more travel soon & this is easier than SIM swapping.  Permalink

From meeting @kemitchell, it's clear to me that open source licenses are going through a time of innovation. Check out License Zero and also Kyle's writing. No, really, go read his last 10 blog posts.  Permalink

OK! I now have 1) micropub clients talking to 2) a micropub glue server, 3) pushing to git, pushing to Netlify, which builds my Jekyll blog, producing feeds that 4) @microdotblog cross posts to Twitter, Medium, and LinkedIn. Full write up here  Permalink

Setting up the office with proper supplies - ramen, Kind bars, Ethernet cabling & a few crypto specific items ;)  Permalink

It's past midnight, is it working yet?  Permalink

I may quite possibly be posting this via micropublish.net, to my own micropub server on Heroku, which turns it into Jekyll compatible md file and posts it to Github, which sends it to Netlify, which creates a feed for MicroBlog.  Permalink

I think I’m about to put “Full Time Open Sourcerer” on my business card. A lot more fun than Head of Operations & Community. More on this dev.to thread. (via @expede)  Permalink

Starting to think about food & cooking oriented projects for 2018. This is a spaetzle maker, for making German egg noodles. Could we build a kitchen library in Vancouver for sharing space & under-used tools? Tag something you might want to share with #vancouverkl  Permalink
