Show Notes:


The Warty Warthog, better known to most as Ubuntu 4.10, was a rough and ready stab at bringing Linux to the masses.

Mark described his new Linux distribution as one bringing together: “…the extraordinary breadth of Debian with a fast and easy install, regular releases (every six months), a tight selection of excellent packages installed by default and a commitment to security updates with 18 months of security and technical support for every release.”


The reason I’m doing the IndieGoGo is I have stage 4 esophageal cancer. Haven’t worked since January of 2014 and may not go back to work for a long time. I am on social security disability and have a very limited budget.


Help with the Kubuntu Podcast


I’m one of the hosts of the Kubuntu Podcast, and a big fan of your shows.

Currently we publish our shows only on Youtube ( and Google+ (, and sometimes as audio using Google Drive.

Since we’re big fans of Jupiter Broadcasting, we look to you guys as mentors on how to organize our podcast. However, there are many things that we don’t know or are unsure how to do better.

Currently we use Google Hangouts to record our Podcast, and we’re looking into OBS.

Could you give use some feedback and tell us how do you organize your podcast? Maybe have a video call and discuss this in more detail.

Thank you.


Why OpenStreetMap is the Most Important thing in Geo

The OpenStreetMap community is maturing and the industry surrounding it is expanding. We have only seen the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to the potential of OpenStreetMap and what it can do. I look forward to being apart of what’s next. is an online map to search, find and mark wheelchair-accessible places. Get involved by marking public places like bars, restaurants, cinemas or supermarkets!

MAPS.ME – Offline OpenStreetMap maps for iOS/Android/Mac/Linux/Windows

Inspired by OSMTracker for Windows Mobile, allows you to track your journeys, mark waypoints with tags, voice record, and photos.

GPS traces can then be exported in GPX format for later use with OpenStreetMap tools like JOSM, or uploaded directly to OpenStreetMap.

Tracks can be displayed over an OpenStreetMap background or with no background if you don’t have a data plan.

MAPS.ME is beautifully designed, and the maps do load very quickly. It would be a good resource to have in your pocket.

We’re excited to announce Mapzen Search, our new search engine for places that takes our philosophy of open communities creating data and code to its heart. Mapzen Search will launch in the next week, and in the meantime, we wanted to share some background on why the time is right for a new, open search engine for places.
