Back in April I attended LinuxFest NW. As usual, it was delightful. Got the opportunity to give a few presentations (including a Q&A on openSUSE).
My big presentation was titled simply “Linux is #@&%ing Weird“. It was, in a nutshell, me talking about a boatload of the weird (and wonderful) devices and places where you can find Linux. Fair warning: there are a few naughty words in here. It’s for the grown-ups. 🙂 Just broke 100,000 views on my YouTube Channel, to boot. All-in-all, pretty happy with how that came out.
On that note, my “Linux Sucks 2016” video — which was recorded a few months back at the Southern California Linux Expo and features cameos from the likes of Richard Stallman, Jim Whitehurst, Cory Doctorow and Piers Anthony — is steadily closing in on 400,000 views.
Does that make me smile?
Yes. Yes, it does.
Oh, and a huge thanks goes out to my supporters on Patreon. They make it possible for me to afford the travel and recording costs for creating these videos. Without their support (and the support of the conferences brave enough to give me a podium) these videos wouldn’t be happening. A hearty Internet-based high-five to you all.
