    Hey, nice slides! Why are you not on p.g.o? I can see I’ve missed out on a lot of good posts. :-)


  2. Natan Yellin says:

    Thank you.

    I’ve tried contacting Jeff Waugh about p.g.o. but I haven’t been able to get in touch with him yet. If you know of anyone else who might be able to help than that would be great.

    • In the days before Microsoft implemented security zones
      in both Internet Explorer and Windows, Active – X controls could be run with full access to the computer including the file system.
      ‘ Expanded support of devices – USB access supports POS devices, webcams, microphones,
      scanners, digital cameras, and more. The key is
      to be mindful of exactly what we are doing when we are doing
      it, and to focus on just that one thing.

    That’s an old problem that a lot of people tried to address to no avail sadly …
    But you pinpoint it perfectly. Go to conferences, show it, insist. Maybe you could get things moving in the right direction.

    library.gnome.org was supposed to replace the totally out of date developer.gnome.org. for some reason it is unfinished and I don’t know if someone is still working on it.

  4. ldng says:

    hum, as of today, it seems that http://developer.gnome.org/ style exists but is not linked anymore from the Gnome homepage, http://library.gnome.org/devel/ is. Stil, this is not enough.

    I think its gotten a bit better lately, but there still are more things that need to be done. I’ll see if I can raise awareness about it at the next GNOME event that I attend.
