Paid and volunteer tech, SF tourist and trains

As June wound down and July rushed in, both MJ and I happened to friends in town the same week leading into the 4th of July weekend. Pile in extra time at work for both of us and we’ve been busy. At work I have started to be the community team representative for the Bay […]

Giving Tuesday (and every day) to support Linux in schools

The Tuesday following Cyber Monday has been designated Giving Tuesday. Whether you observe charitable giving on that day or any other day of the year, the following are organizations I’ve worked with and/or given to that promote one of my own passions: putting Free/Open Source Software into schools and others in need. I’ve been on […]

Ubuntu tie clips or tie pins?

Over the past couple of years Boutique Academia has made a name for themselves in the Ubuntu community by selling Ubuntu Earrings and Ubuntu Necklaces. I recently received an email from the company founder, Maile Urbancic, about the possibility of adding more to their lineup in the form of tie clips and during the discussion […]

Ubuntu Necklaces now available! $10 of each purchase supports Ubuntu in schools

Almost a year and a half ago, in June of 2011, I wrote about Ubuntu Earrings being sold by Boutique Academia in Gold plated and Rhodium plated (silver color, but doesn’t tarnish). They were so popular that they have sold out of them, but have more on order. But not everyone wanted earrings! This week […]

Some Partimus work, a space ship and the rest of September

September was quite the overwhelming month. In retrospect I really took on too much at once and then was slammed by timing of several things, including increased work-related activities, time crunch for some of the wedding planning, all my upcoming travel and the Jewish high holy days. I squeezed in some Partimus work this month, […]

KIPP is among the highest performing middle schools […]

Ubuntu earrings – now in silver!

Back in June I wrote: Buy Ubuntu earrings and help schools using Ubuntu! Since then there have been several requests for a silver color and Maile Urbancic of Boutique Academia responded to those requests! The silver color Ubuntu earrings are now a reality, they are rhodium plated (rhodium is silver colored, but doesn’t tarnish like […]

Buy Ubuntu earrings and help schools using Ubuntu!

Maile Urbancic is the co-founder and former CTO of the non-profit Partimus.org and founder of Boutique Academia, a business she founded to sell math, science, and technology themed accessories for women. Back in March she contacted the current Partimus crew to let us know that she had received permission from Canonical to begin producing Ubuntu […]
