This is “part one” of a three-part blog post on the challenges of keeping up with the “software updates treadmill” in the land of Linux. The next two parts are going to be about the Linux desktop. This first part focuses on the server side and will require about 5 minutes to read.Continue reading “The post-2020 Linux server landscape metamorphosis”
In this blog post, I’m taking a quick break from my GTG blogging frenzy to talk about another one of my non-software projects from the past few
months years (estimated reading time: 3 ½ minutes).
A while ago, I envisioned building a new* professional video production collective for commercial and non-commercial projects, both as a “creative outlet” for one of my long-standing passions, and as a way to build a specialized service offering that can act as a bridge between my own Montreal-based marketing agency and other collaborators or artists and freelancers.Continue reading “Introducing Atypica”
Hey folks, I’m back and I’m looking for some new work to challenge me—preferrably again for an organization that does something good and meaningful for the world. You can read my general profile on my personal website (or my CMO services offering), or keep reading here to discover about what I’ve been up to in the past few years.Continue reading “Open-source-savvy CMO available for hire”
I meant to finish writing and posting this a month or two ago, but urgent tasks and life kept getting in the way. I don’t often talk about client work here, but since this is public-facing ongoing work for a company that is insanely pro-Free-Software (not just “open source”), a company that ships GNOME3 by default on their laptops (something I have awaited for years), I guess it makes sense to talk about what I’ve been up to recently.
a few weeks three months now, I have been helping Purism structure its messaging and get its business in a better shape. Purism is, in itself, a hugely interesting endeavour. Heck, I could go out on a limb and say this venture, alongside the work Endless is doing, is quite possibly one of the most exciting things that has happened to the Free desktop for the past decade—and yet almost nobody heard of it.
Before I can even consider visual branding work (maybe someday—when I get to that point, that would mean things are going really well), there was a fundamental need to fill various gaps in the strategy and daily operations, and to address messaging in a way that simultaneously resonates with:
- hardcore Free Software enthusiasts;
- “Linux” (GNU/Linux) users and developers just looking for great ultraportable workhorses;
- the privacy/security-conscious crowd;
- the public at large (hopefully).
