Android kernel wakelock solution

In two separate email threads this week, I have been asked about the status of the Android wakelock issue that has been described in the past. It turns out that people don't realize that the Linux kernel now supports this type of locking, and has for a few releases now.

Help make the LF Collab Summit Panel discussion not suck

In a few weeks, I'm leading a panel discussion at the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit about "Hardware Success Stories in the Linux Ecosystem". I'm lucky to have a great set of participants from a bunch of companies with a wide range of experience with Linux, so it should be a lot of fun.

Participating are representatives from Intel, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments.

My email bot escaped

As noted before, I get a lot of email every day. A few years ago it got to the point that the number of individual queries coming in was making it so that I really didn't have much time to do much else than answer them. So after messing with some perl scripts I came up with an email bot that sits and watches my inbox for messages it can answer by pointing people at the proper place to ask the question in the first place.

2.6.38: making things Just Work

Linus Torvalds announced the release of the 2.6.38 kernel on March 14. Like its predecessors, 2.6.38 incorporates a lot of work - over 9,500 patches from over 1,100 developers.

Looking for a MeeGo job? Looking for a MeeGo developer?

You know what's awesome? Getting paid to work on MeeGo.

You know what's even more awesome? Having a central place where you can post jobs (if you're an employer) and find jobs (if you want to want to do the work).

We've made some changes to the organization of the job board over at the Linux Foundation, specifically highlighting MeeGo jobs. At, you can post jobs quickly and easily, and those looking for paid MeeGo positions can find them in one place.

Have fun!

Pearls before swine..

My life isn't glamorous. I know that comes as a big shock to everybody, since geeks in general are seen as the crème de la crème of society, and the common perception is that we live the life of rock-stars and party all night with all the other glamorous people.Not so.
