Happy New Year

First of all, I need to excuse to my fellow blog readers for never posting a link to the video hackfest conclusions. The page still looks spot-on, maybe apart from the timeline. I’d add half a year to it.

I’ve also just started my new job in Red Hat‘s desktop team. The job description so far just involves hacking on the same old stuff: world domination. I haven’t heard Flash or browsers mentioned, but I think I’ve heard the words video editing and video conferencing. Exciting times ahead for me!

PS: I would have linked my new work email address, but I’m not going to mention it anywhere. These people already had enough Schadenfreude trying to invent connotations for it.

Video editing! That is awesome… I recently started to play with such things and, as a GNOME user, I am unhappy as Kdenlive proved the best tool so far, forcing me to install tons of unwanted dependencies. However, PiTiVi has a long way to go…

Congrats on the job Benjamin! Looking forward to continue working with you.
