Okay im going to go out on a limb here and ask a question. Why the need for the Gay Games?
I mean when you think about it doesn't the very idea of the Gay Games actually work against what the gay community has been working towards for the last thirty to forty years? Acceptance amongst general society? Now before anybody starts accusing me of being anti-gay - though I doubt anyone is going to read this any way - I have worked, and lived with both gay and lesbian people before and my sister is a lesbian. Just establishing my credentials as a non homophobe.
But really when you think about it, the biggest cry of the gay and lesbian community especially around Sydney and Melbourne has been "give us the same rights as other monogomouse couples","give us access to the family court". Now I am all for that but they are not going to win over the general community by developing unecessarliy divisiv events such as the gay games. As far as I know there is no rule that says a gay or lesbian person may not compete in any world event. There may be rules about post-op trans-gendered people competing in womens events but that is another topic altogether.
Anyway thats my rant for today
I would like to take this opporunity to announce the launch of the WINVID Non-Linear Editing Suite. The aim of this project is to produce an Enterprise level Non-Linear editing package for Linux and other *nix based systems, allowing Linux to compete on yet another front against the dreaded lurgy.
I want comments and suggestions, so if anybody is reading this, drop me a line and tell me what you think.
Okay so I don't have a brain the size of a planet but you get the picture, I am geek.
I am the Software Dev guy for a regional television station in Australia and I am slowly attempting to woo them over from the dark side.
Right now I am working on the only Linux workstation in the entire organisation but if my plans work soon I will rule the world. Naarf
Seriously though, I am a Linux guy stuck in a world full of Windoze users, I am planning on starting a Linux consultancy in my area soon, but first I have to figure out how Im going to get the money.
