Every blog has to have a first port and this blog is no different.
I have considered having a blog for a while but never got around to it. I don't know if anyone cares to read it or not. I am the maintainer of the free real-time operating system RTEMS (http://www.rtems.org) and a member of the GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) Steering Committee (http://gcc.gnu.org). I plan to ramble on free software activities that I am involved in, interesting bugs, RTEMS improvements, etc.. I may also ramble about design patterns for use in embedded systems, performance analysis, and GNU/Linux.
This is a modest beginning to what I hope will be a blog containing interesting posts.
