I’ve started vlogging! I have been wanting to get into video, and figured that something personal and low-stakes would be a good way to learn. You can view episode one here, and I also put out a new episode this morning about my trip last weekend:

Taking a Break with Batch of Books! | Bowie Barking | 6 October 2023

I would absolutely love it if you shared and subscribed πŸ’

I also made a photo blog post about the trip to Rochester and NYC, which you can find on my site.

Long story short: the trip was amazing! The Strong Museum of Play has got to be one of my favorite museums, both for the topic and for the great redesign that it just had. Spending time with my partners in NYC for a few days was great, and the food and weather in both cities was amazing. 10/10 would do again.

92 – Juliette Reinders Folmer on When Contributions Need to Be Paid – WP Tavern Jukebox

I use WPCS and didn’t realize that it was not well supported, both in maintainers and in financial support. But why would I not expect that? That’s all of the open source community.
