    Re: is ubuntu going to terminate Brainstorm

    We *do* filter out a huge amount before voting.

    A lot of users mistake the difference between "listening to" and "implementing for"

    Classic example:
    "I want an application the tells me what other applications are making outgoing network connections, and the ability to reject those outgoing connections at the firewall."
    "Why do you want to do such a thing?"
    "Because I want control over my outgoing connections."
    "Why do you want such a manual control? How will it benefit you?"
    "I just want to manually manage it."
    "Oh."

    I listened to him.
    I did not implement it for him. Not something I was interested in doing unless getting paid for it.

    Thumbs down Re: is ubuntu going to terminate Brainstorm

    I see that Brainstorm appears to have been terminated.

    I've just gone to visit Brainstorm, but instead I get the Community page.

    I guess it's gone now.

    In my day, we had the outdoors in which to run, play, and socialise. Now people use computers for that.

    Yes, I think it is gone now. I searched at google but I didn't get an article about the end – only about the discussion. If somebody have a link about the ending of this project – I am interested in it.

    The IS team has shut it off, there should be an announcement from either the techboard or the community council at some point.

    Thanks for the information. Brainstorm generated some lively and interesting discussion, so it's sad that it's gone.

    I never got involved with the Brainstorm site as much as I intended to but I guess Canonical's view of what should or should not be included in Ubuntu was always going to over-ride what the users wanted.

    I seem to recall reading somewhere that at the end there was only one user that had administration rights so presumably the site had little importance in influencing what Canonical was going to include or exclude in future Ubuntu releases.

    I'm surprised the site lasted as long as it did.

    The guys from StackExchange interviewed me on their podcast: https://soundcloud.com/stack-exchang...nge-podcast-48

    FFWd to 12:30 for the discussion on Brainstorm, I figure it's easier to explain than my typing out the entire thing.

    This isn't true, at the end of the day Brainstorm didn't generate enough working implementations to make it worth running the site.
