Why Launchpad isnít taking off just yet

Category: Academic,Anthropology,Debian,Hackers,Tech — Biella @ 10:02 am

My Ubuntu-counterpart, Andreas Lloyd, has written a nice response to Lars Risan’s interesting discussion of tensions between Ubuntu and Debian and in it, he visits, with great detail (or as much as a blog post will allow), the limits of launchpad. It is exciting to see more anthropologists conducting in-depth research on F/OSS projects with a keen awareness of the ways technology mediate or make possible certain social relationships. . .


  1. Sigh. The world is producing interesting things for me to read faster than I can read them. And forget about actually finding the time to write about them…

  2. Tell me about it. Maybe if we all stopped blogging? :-)

  3. But if we stopped blogging, where would we write? Would we have to print things on paper? Would they have to be longer than 1,000 words at a time? Oh Brave New World…
