On the heals of having my talk accepted I’ve booked my flight to this years GUADEC/Gran Canaria Desktop Summit. Much thanks goes out to my manager Tom “spot” Callaway for finding funds for my airfare. I think it shows a lot of support and commitment from Fedora/Redhat even though I am not in the Desktop group anymore.
My talk is happening sometime during the core days and I will be talking about Open Web Services, open data exchange between projects and melding server side and client side to build an open community of applications. After working on d-bus and seeing the success a standard IPC platform has brought the richness of our desktop I believe it is time we expand that meme to include standard application interaction across the physical barriers of the Desktop. It is time to bring the (N)etwork back into G(N)OME while keeping true to our Free and Open Source roots.[read this post in: ar de es fr it ja ko pt ru zh-CN ]
