GUADEC 2014 Map

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

Want a custom map for GUADEC 2014? Here’s a map I made that shows the venue, the suggested hotels, transit ports (airport/train station), vegetarian & veggie-friendly restaurants, and a few sights that look interesting. I made this with Google Map Engine, exported to KML, and also changed to GeoJSON and GPX. Original Maps Engine GeoJSON […]

Giving feedback

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Lucas Rocha shared Seth Godin‘s blog post “the worst feedback is indifference” on Google+, and I posted a reply. In the interest of openness and distribution (and actually posting content on my blog), here’s my response: I was on a call the other day where someone told me that they wouldn’t ever give me negative […]

Adwaita (GNOME 3 theme) for Chrome

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Like many of you, I split my time between two excellent browsers: Firefox and Chrome. Neither feels really all so native in GNOME3 — although Firefox, as it mimics GTK+2 by default, fits in just a little better. Every time I started Chrome, however, I felt a bit frustrated with how much of a sore thumb […]

the future of Nautilus

Sunday, June 20th, 2010

Hi everyone! I worked on a few different things during the Novell/SUSE HackWeek. One of these things was continuing my Nautilus redesign that I (Garrett LeSage) started last year, continued with others (Allan Day, Hylke Bons, Máirín Duffy, etc.) at the London UX meeting and at LGM2010… and then further talked about on the Internet. During the HackWeek […]

Google Wave & native scrollbars

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

For those of you also using Google Wave, you may have noticed the funky scrollbars. They’re bad for all sorts of reasons, most notably performance. Máirín (rightfully) complained about them in a community designers’ wave we’re in, so I decided to take five minutes to see if I could implement a hack… and was successful! Basically, with essentially […]

A blog post

Friday, October 30th, 2009

For whatever reason, my “oh yeah, I have a blog!” blog post has shown up on Planet GNOME… again. Is it there to serve as a reminder that I actually do have a blog, and I should do these posting-blog-posts and uploading-pictures things? Here’s a picture that I uploaded yesterday. It’s a sunset over the […]

Nautilus, streamlined

Friday, July 24th, 2009

While at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, an impromptu graphic and UI design session erupted in the hotel hackfest room. We worked on GNOME artwork and design related subject matter. A few of us discussed and sketched wireframe mockups of gnome-shell and Nautilus. This hackweek, I decided to start fleshing out the mockups. I tried […]
