:blender: So the Principled BSDF is missing this:
and now I need a T-shirt saying "Everything has **Roughness** Fresnel"

:blender: does anyone know if there has been any attempt at gathering statistics on Blender's use in various industries ?

Working on the Agent 327 feature story in LA with Colin Levy, Hjalti Hjalmarsson and industry veterans Wilbert Plijnaar and Dave Lux. They'll be doing it for 2 weeks, I'm here for a week doing networking and something I hope to reveal later :) #b3d

Say hello to the new Fairphone 3: the phone that cares for people and planet.
#DareToCare and be one of the first to pre-order: frphn.co/Fairphone3Preorder

Change is in your hands. #WeAreFairphone

@gbryant I'm very curious to hear your thoughts on that. I hope Fairphone gets at least a little more talked about in the FOSS community.

The 3 just got out :

I really appreciate their environmental and approach.
Sure they don't develop a full FOSS OS like 's but you can install an existing one without voiding your warranty and it pretty much becomes the ultimate ethical phone.
I wish both companies combined forces but right now I'd rather not contribute to human labor and armed conflicts than prioritize my own high-level privacy.

What do you think? What will you buy?

:gimp: For those who missed the news, #GIMP got forked big time: 

Why should you right now jump into the few remaining niche alternatives to commercial software?
Because the longer you wait, the less chances you will have be able to say:
"Dude, I used it before it was cool." when foss rules the world.
And believe me, you will want to be able say that. 😎

@gbryant I saw you briefly mention Plex in your recent Firefox screw-up video and nearly blindly jumped into it when I heard the words "DRM-free". But now I'm not clear how it frees the DRMs from Tidal which uses DRM. And I can't find a another video of you talking about Plex. Is there any?

If you use Firefox or Chrome, we developed an easy way you can help people bypass censorship.

@gbryant Hey, I really like your work. I hope you set up a Peertube channel someday but mostly, have you seen this? Just found it out but I think Youtubers should be concerned by it.

Wow, seriously? Share this massively :
I can't wait for that to happen.

Watched Andrew Price's 2.80 announcement/top6 video.
It hurt.
He's an 8 year long Blender tutor who was my entry door to Blender as he was for a great part of the community and somehow, more than ever, he sounds like a long time commercial software user who's just starting to realize "free" doesn"t mean worse. Maybe I'm overreacting but some things he said truly sounded wrong.
