Ironic Email

Filed under: Me stuff — m0j0 @ 8:26 am

I got an email today telling me that two pictures I took while in Portland, OR for OSCON were selected to be included in this application which shall remain nameless, which maps an area and has pictures of the landmarks like restaurants and bookstores and the like. 

So, I went to check out the application, and it turns out you need Windows to run it. There’s a Mac version due out in January, but that’s vaporware as far as I’m concerned, and there’s no mention of Linux anywhere on the site. 

“Sure, you can go ahead and use photos I took while traveling to an OPEN SOURCE convention and use them in your PROPRIETARY, WINDOWS ONLY application, which is simple enough to do in a browser… No problem!”
