The Semantic Desktop Wants You

,----[ Quote ]
| As explained on Userbase, Nepomuk is a 
| promising new technology which aims to make 
| the user's data easier to find. Not only 
| through the now common search and indexing, 
| but also by making use of more complex 
| relationships between documents, contacts 
| and all sorts of data. While the full 
| potential of Nepomuk is still shrouded in 
| mystery for most of us, for developers it is 
| an exciting area of work where academic 
| research and Free Software development come 
| together.


Simple KDE Trick #2: using remote desktops with avahi, krfb and krdc

,----[ Quote ]
| Most people nowadays have more than one 
| computer. Often, you are using one, and 
| would like to do something in another. In 
| this video, I will explain how trivial it is 
| to do that without leaving your seat in a 
| modern Linux using KDE.
| We will use the following:
|     * Avahi, a zeroconf implementation to 
|     let you find your computers in your 
|     network without worrying about IP 
|     addresses, DNS, etc.
|     * krfb, the KDE Remote Frame Buffer. 
|     This is a program to share your desktop 
|     over the network.
|     * krdc, the KDE Remote Desktop Client, a 
|     VNC, RDP client, which is what you use 
|     to see a desktop shared via krfb.



GNOME 3.0 Determines Boston Summit

,----[ Quote ]
| While the European Linux scene has been busy with
| KDE and Qt, a relatively unnoticed but important
| gathering occurred in the U.S. to determine the
| future of the GNOME desktop: the GNOME Boston Summit
| 2009.


Boston GNOME Summit 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| I spent this weekend in Boston for the annual
| GNOME summit. I really enjoyed it this year,
| although there were fewer attendees than
| previously it felt very focussed and productive.
| Thereâs some cool stuff going on, and itâs
| always great to catch up with all of the usual
| free software suspects in Boston.


Telepathy Q&A from the Boston GNOME Summit

,----[ Quote ]
| The first Telepathy session session on Saturday
| evening at the Boston GNOME Summit was very much
| of a Q&A where myself and Will answered various
| technical and roadmap issues from a handful of
| developers and downstream distributors. It
| showed me that thereâs a fair amount of roadmap
| information we should do better at communicating
| outside of the Telepathy project, so in the hope
| its useful to others, read onâ


Gnome Summit (@MIT)

,----[ Quote ]
| For this yearâs gnome summit I decided to
| attend. I wanted to see what was going on and
| keep in touch with various people in the FOSS
| community. While Iâm not a gnome hacker
| myself, I have made gnome apps, plugins and
| know some of the people working on new
| things.
