Children of the Internet, prophets, readers, fans, and friends! Nothing warms my heart more than thermonuclear reactions, and failing that, when someone puts me under a spotlight. Since I have a highly developed sense of narcissism and histrionics with a dab of self-diagnosed megalomania, USI and a keen love for the stage, being called to attention by others, in a good way, is a great boon. On a more serious note, but not by a lot, I have not one but two author spotlights for you!

Dear readers, we have a new contest ahead of us! The format is very similar to the two previous contests that we had, the first one in 2013, which resulted in a lucky winner getting a Nexus phone, as the Ubuntu Phone was not ready yet then, and the one in 2014-2015, where I finally handed out an BQ Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Phone to an entrepreneuring contestant. This year? The Ubuntu M10 tablet.

Believe it or not, I have never had a writer’s block per se. I do have time periods where I scribble more or less prose, while my technical writing verbosity remains constant. But I have yet to face that dreadful situation when no words come forth from the tips of your fingers. However, I did notice a clear correlation between seasons and my inspiration.
