Calling is not blogging.

For example, if you forgot to call your father for 3 weeks, it does not make sense to call him 3 times in a single day to make up for it.

Social media updates from the riders are a bit sparse, it seems that they are all too busy riding bikes. Can't think why.

A lot of open source in general is about communication. And part of it is the commit messages, part of it is just the email going back and forth. Communicating what you're trying to do or communicating why something doesn't work for you is really important.

Linus Torvalds: 'I Do No Coding Any More'

Freedom Call.

Over the past two months, I’m in voice and video conferences for several hours a day. It has become routine. But this is something else entirely. I strongly reminds me of a day 15 years ago when I had my first 3G video call to my girlfriend between Germany and Italy.

Private end-to-end mobile voice and video calling over my own infrastructure. Ah!

Here are my reasons why.
