      bobjonkman favorited something by guizzy: Today @mitsu and I went to a Spanish specialty grocery store, got sobressada and menorcan cheese. Then we went to an european specialty store and got stroopwaffels. And we went to Bagel St-Viateur, and got freshly made bagels (the real stuff, not New York pretenders) to enjoy with some smoked […]

      Hang in there, Dr. Sekula. Your summer somewhat mirrors mine: Conflicted about working in a Covid environment; trying to stay engaged in politics (not physics research); the loss of my father and admitting my mom to a long-term care facility where Covid mortality is high. We'll pull through, and if the future looks different from […]

She said they had one of each, but she wanted more. So I ordered a few of each and they put them up. Tonight, the gas […]

      But human labour only produces surplus value when it's being exploited. If humans are paid a fair value for their labour then there is no "surplus", ie. no profit for the corporate owners. This is why I favour worker-owned co-operatives instead of capitalist-owned corporations.

      RT @lxo the greatest challenge of automation for a capitalist economy is that machines don't produce surplus value, only human labor does

Pictures from the KW Ubuntu Release Party

Posted by Bob Jonkman on October 21st, 2012

The Kitchener-Waterloo chapter of the Ubuntu Canadian Team had a wonderful Ubuntu Release Party today. Laurel Russwurm baked a cake and I made some devilled eggs:

Quantal Cake and Devilled Eggs

If you squint a little you can make out the Ubuntu logos…

Ralph brought the official Ubuntu banner:

That’s Jeff, Sergiane, Raul, Ralph, Karim, Bob, and Henrique.

Then it was time to cut the cake:

Bob Jonkman cuts the cake
Cutting cake is serious business!

And the second shift finishes it off:

The rest of the partygoers

That’s David, Gord, Bob, Ralph, and Darcy.

Many thanx to Paul for hosting and The Working Centre for the use of St. John’s Kitchen!
