To extend this metaphor a bit more
A ballpoint pen is something that literally everyone finds useful. It does its job and does it very well, and you hardly even think about it. It is universal.
The Saturn V is super cool but it is not useful for anything outside of one very specific problem and that is a nation state sending people to another world.
Basically every software designed for the daily user should take its cues from the ballpoint pen. There's a place for Saturn V software, but that place is, like, CERN, not your webshit thing.
A future where we truly own our content and can leave centralised platforms of any kind. I’d be happy to help should you want to try. The future is decentralised IMHO. 2/2
In 40 minutes at 12:00UTC/14:00CEST Marco Martin talks about Kirigami: convergence with Desktop as first-class at Qt Desktop Days summit
If you are interested in mobile-desktop convergence, then you may also be interested in the talk I will be giving in a few hours in #akademy2020. Join me at 16.30 UTC.
@debian @kde if you pay someone else to build a function for you, and encourage them to use open source, they will do so in a way to scratch their itch. This will not sole your core issues, eg maintainability, vendor lock-in, access to smart people in the community. These are not itches to your suppliers, that is how they keep you hooked.
Likes embedded Linux, Qt, open source and more. Works at koderize.com and kurostudio.com. Runs foss-north.se and foss-gbg.se. Opinions are my own.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
