Probably the most important thing I've written about GNOME in the past few years. It's long, but take the time to read it all.
A mini-rant on the lack of string slices in C - https://people.gnome.org/~federico/blog/rant-on-string-slices.html
If I understand this correctly, this is a paper about 3D printing physical objects, with no electronics, that send information over wifi.
This is magic.
A history of emergent intelligence
Round-up of all the development these past 2 months for Builder as we progress towards 3.28.
Good to hear this from Nvidia. This is the attitude I like to see!

@hergertme sysprof is awesome, just used it to find a perf bottleneck in a game (which happens to have debuginfo).
Is it possible to display the .so which contains the given function though? Had to guess that part.
Also it seems to be incorrectly putting a function as being called from within another (long) function, even though it's just frequently called from other threads (unrelated to the long function).
Tomorrow's Nightly builds of Builder will make it just a single click to start contributing to a GNOME app.
great thread on how most current-day user interfaces are garbage https://twitter.com/gravislizard/status/927593460642615296
Bought a new monitor, and I have to spend about 5 minutes turning it on and off, plugging and unplugging it from my Mac, and closing and opening the laptop lid just to get it to work.
I love that we're off building AI to pilot spaceships or whatever, and yet basic shit like projectors and monitors and printers still don't work worth a damn

The contrast between my nice, clean LineageOS experience and the junkie Samsung/T-Mobile experience that came preinstalled on the phone was also pretty jarring.
I spent like 5 minutes wading through that garbage (just enough time to set up USB debugging) and I was assaulted with "hey, sign into your Samsung account," "hey, try this other Samsung thing," "hey, T-Mobile tracks everything you do, hope you're cool with that," etc. Can't believe people put up with this
@Efi well it's called "garbage collection" for a reason -- if it worked fine, it'd be called "great collection" or "good collection" or at least "reasonable collection".
@hergertme Welp, it eventually loaded, but after a couple of clicks on different things it segfaulted.
