NHS Hack Day Judgement

Myself and Paul and Nicky and Carry judged the entries. They were all winners. They all showed what could be done when you put people with ideas together with people who can hack. They all showed the power of open, collaborative and friendly development.

The winner was: Pocket TherAPPist, Michael Richardson learnt how to code Android in two days and mastered Eclipse to make a way of recording a patient's anxiety levels for later review.

NHS Lothian Tech Managers' Ignorance to be Saved by NHS Hack Scotland

There’s been chat that my NHS Hack Scotland post implies there’s no
point in going to the event, that in light of the NHS Lothian FOI request anything created at the weekend has no chance of being used in the NHS. I wouldn’t be attending (and judging!) if that were true!

Re-post: David Edmundson KDE, LightDM and the Mir Kerfuffle

A re-post of David Edmundson's blog KDE, LightDM and the Mir Kerfuffle for Planet Ubuntu

With Canonical's decision to make a new display server, there's been some questions as to how this affects LightDM and the KDE front end I've spent a long time working towards.
It's a perfectly sensible question, LightDM has heavy Canonical sponsorship, and a display server needs to be supported in the display manager.

Hack Scotland weekend to Save the NHS

NHS Hack Scotland is a weekend event to bring together geeks and developers with medics and manager from Scotland's lovely health service. Like the equivalent NHS Hack Days in the equivalent (but endangered) health service in England is it planned to end up with open source prototype programmes to solve interesting problems.

I Agree with Canonical

Really I do, dunno why some people think I unfairly critisise them. They want to fix bug number 1, "Microsoft has a majority market share". The obvious way to do that was with the existing community made desktop software but after many years that still had minimal traction. Actually lots of nice rollouts around the world in educational institutions, every region/nation in Spain made their own Ubuntu derivative and of course Kubuntu has had the world's biggest Linux desktop rollout in Brazil.
