      @clacke Our #KWNPSA user group chatted with the #GetTogether developer a few months ago. He said demand for self-hosted G2G instances was minimal, and event interchange even more minimal. So #ActivityPub support on G2G has stalled, and he considers G2G more or less stable and mature.

      @lnxw48a1 Ubuntu 22.04 has way too much reliance on snaps. Can't even get a regular install of Firefox, f'rinstance, only a snap.

      That "aura" around bright objects is what I saw when I first got a cataract (clouding of the lens). It wasn't bad at first, and only in one eye, so I let it go until my vision was totally obscured in that eye. Don't do that. Get your eyes checked, and maybe a referral to […]

      bobjonkman favorited something by hypolite: Ok, that’s what I thought, thank you for the explanations. When I wear the new glasses, anything beyond a couple of feet is doubled until my eyes adjust which takes more time than with my current glasses, and then it still is almost imperceptibly blurry, although the comparison between the […]

@OpenDataWR hosts Open Data Day Event — Saturday, 22 Feb 2014 at @Kwartzlab #ODD2014

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 21st February 2014

Open Data Waterloo Region

 

Continuing with the theme of my personal social calendar — On Saturday, 22 February 2014 I’ll be at Open Data Waterloo Region‘s Open Data Day Event, held at Kwartzlab again this year. There’s a schedule, suggested projects, dataset lists and more on Waterloo Region‘s page on the International Open Data Day Hackathon wiki.

Last year William and I started a project to add OpenStreetMap links to Thunderbird’s Lightning calendar. We didn’t finish, so that’s one project to work on this year. Also, since last year I’ve been dabbling with the Food Premise Inspection Data to add the restaurant location data to OpenStreetMap. And I hope to be taking lots of pictures and video of the event.

Come join us! Here’s the bumf:
