@shel I want to start an organization (not political, but for a life stance (now sure how well known this phrase is, so here's the Wikipedia: )

I chose a light blue color, because blue is well liked by most people, and this particular shade is not so much used, and pretty IMHO :)

I must say 1.0 looks very interesting! I like the looks of the Medium-like Koening editor very much. Has anyone tried it yet?

My favorite desktop environment celebrates their 20th borthday today! Happy birthday, ! Keep up the awesome work!

I actually get a little annoyed by the decline of r/me_irl.

It was such a nice sub with tons of fun selfdeprecating humor, and now it's just shit. Why did the mods allow this?

Is there a r/real_me_irl or something where I can get my dose of selfdeprecation nowadays, without going all r/2meirl4meirl?

The #FreeSoftware movement needs more artists! It needs more graphic designers, UI/UX peeps, people who can draw, people who have a good eye for beauty and usability, people who can design logos, etc.

*ALL* the artistic people are important to the Free Software movement

As of right now most free software tends to be ugly and difficult for newcomers to use. It tends to have weird looking logos or hideous ancient looking color schemes. Artists are the solution. #FreeSW has the coding down, design is next.
