Ubuntu tablet coming ... is the hardware HTC?

I have no inside information at all, and the following should be taken with a HUGE pinch of salt ... but with a countdown ending Feb 19th on Ubuntu.com hinting at a Tablet announcement, and also HTC's Feb 19th announcement countdown one has to wonder a little bit. And now even more when HTC posted the picture below to Instagram as a teaser with what looks like it has some tablet sized devices on the bottom row under covers ... make your own judgement call, how cool would that be. I for one will be eagerly waiting tomorrow to find out :)

A misc git tip

For those that have used bzr in the past and are accustomed to “bzr branch lp:~imbrandon/some-project” or similar should like adding this to their ~/.gitconfig
[url "ssh://git@github.com/"]
insteadOf = gh:
insteadOf = gh:~
This allows you to “git clone gh:~bholtsclaw/git-bzr” in much the same way. Also if you are a heavy github user I’d highly recommend checking out the “hub” git cli wrapper found here.

Do Something that Scares You

A guest post on @fat’s blog by @divya is a great read I think everyone should take a moment to checkout, in part below are a few quotes.
By idolising people, I gave up on my opportunity to change the world, learn something exhilaratingly new, call out the wrongs done, and contribute to right some of the wrongs.
And this one, referring to herself:
None of these required any particular skill or talent, they are merely results of taking an action.
Don’t simply do what the rest of us do, do it differently, do it with pride, do it faster. Take a stance and have an opinion. Don’t be afraid to be wrong. In fact, you should expect to be proved wrong. We learn the most when we take a chance on something and discover our assumptions were incorrect. Taking risks with our own ideas is how we learn to be stay both humble and ambitious. It’s a delicate balance, but one of the most important.
