In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, Dan and Ny take on three issues in the WordPress community that can threaten or impair trust while also revealing how foundational trust and healthy communication are: 1) racism and microaggressions, 2) the sudden removal and uncertain fate of the active install growth chart in the WordPress.org plugin repository, and 3) open source and security. Briefly discussed: emerging US federal policy that aims to secure open-source software. Zero-trust architecture might work well for networked machines, but human relationships and communities need trust.
United States national security interests are poised to become more invested in and engaged with open source projects classified as public infrastructure. From Log4j to the Securing Open Source Software Act, how did it all come together in 2022, and what may lie ahead?
Why do designers quit? Matej Latin breaks down the results of his survey. Amelia Nagoski says self-care is not enough to prevent burnout — we have to care for each other. Alyssa Place explains how managers can do that. Maintenance failures can be lethal, but Stewart Brand finds the winning maintenance style in sailing history.
RescueTime, which I’ve used since they started up, often has pretty good articles on time management and such. This is one. Most good habits are about maintenance.
What’s the best approach to maintenance — in software, sailing, or anything else? Hope for the best? Stewart Brand takes a famous solo, non-stop, round-the-world sailing race as a parable about maintenance styles that will win, go beyond winning, or drive you mad.
In this episode Dan and Ny are tired! — but excited about heading to their first WordCamp of any kind. They talk about the things they’re looking forward to seeing and doing at WCUS and in San Diego. Lots of interesting speakers and talks! Contributor day! Karaoke. Food comes up — a lot.
