Over the past Memorial Day weekend here in the U.S.A. I spent the long weekend camping in rural Pennsylvania with some old good friends, playing music. We are musicians and have had fun playing music together for the past 19 years.
It was great to have the opportunity to get away from the big city of Chicago and reflect. Right now I am running for reelection for a 4th term on The GNOME Foundation board of directors. With the GNOME 3 release now behind us, I anticipate that the next year will be busy. The GNOME community is changing, evolving and redefining itself as we push forward with a next generation desktop with a design that scales from the smallest devices to the largest multi-user servers. With so much work coming, it feels great to have my batteries recharged. I am looking forward to another year serving the GNOME community as we work together to create the best free software desktop out there.
