I have been wondering about doing an experiment for solar powered data centres that automatically transfers workloads around the world to where ever the sun is shining. Could be fun to try!

We talk of "follow the sun support" what about supporting follow the sun hosting?

What is value?

What are values?

Why do we focus on value?

Ultimately, in many ways a value is simply a point of measurement. A small stripe on a ruler or thermometer. A price, a temperature, a height, a weight. A value. A number.

But we use the word in other ways too. We talk of values that are not numbers, we use this word to collect concepts that are much harder to measure.

Wow.  This year is off to a racing start for me.  We're already 12 days in, and my mind is abuzz with ideas, options, and potential for 2024.

Open unlocks the world's potential.  That's the Red Hat Why.

And Open is my word for 2024. Just one little word. A word I've held tightly for many years now.

As session co-chair for the Everything Open conference I'm feeling drawn to explore more about what it means to different people, and how we "unlock" it for everyone.

The Open Practice Library is filled with useful stuff. Stuff that helps people work together better, build the right thing, and build the thing right. In this session we'll gather ideas and issues from participants, and design potential solutions and pathways together using the Mobius Loop, and the library of open practices. It should be fun, come along!

30 minutes on the 4th of Feb, in Brussels, at FOSDEM.

I splurged. Before Christmas, I bought myself the complete set of PIP Decks. I picked them up yesterday. Let's get started with the Productivity Tactics deck.  The productivity strategy system is golden. It has that magic quality of seeming obvious once you read it, and yet, it's not. I am way too skilled at procrastination, so that's a thing I'd really like to get worse at doing. The Reset cards will resource this mission.

Yesterday, I encountered a special little bookshop in the country town of St Arnaud. Jane, the proprietor, only sells Australian books. New, and second hand. I picked up a copy of Brian Matthews book Louisa. 

It was at 2011 in Brisbane where I started the campaign to digitise the dawn. Crowdfunding cash to donate to the National Library of Australia to scan the pages of Louisa Lawson’s journal.
