Thankyou, I definitely need an energy boost. Our son was born a month ago, so we have a toddler and a newborn. = mayhem
The essay is really interesting. I've read elsewhere about social media creating bubbles of people that have similar opinions. Emsenn, you you expand on that, which is needed. You've helped me reflect on my own use of computers, since retraining this year, in particular, being drawn to complex ways of doing things.
A mini break from toddler parenting: laying on my back, one eye closed, looking at the reflection in my watch of clouds moving slowly.
I'm new to this and don't have many contacts in the tech industry. Offers of support would be very much appreciated, particularly a conversation so that I can speak to someone more experienced.
I'm working on my first Wordpress website design and build. I'm using bits of knowledge from a digital media degree I graduated from in 2001 and various courses I've done more recently on WordPress and UX design. My plan is to offer Wordpress design and build to clients including minimal UX design and WP admin training. I'll be attemtping to use as much open source web apps as possible. The awesome people at @contact are making this much easier than I expected.
Yes, I see from some other comments that excalidraw.com are planning on switching away from google to an open source storage server, and have removed google tag manager. Thanks for the link.
Like @maloki I'm writing a journal. I started recently to support my mental health during this strange time. Juggling a change of careers and childcare has been a challenge. I've used journaling for reflection, to find areas of stuckness. Mainly this has been helpful in changing my mindset from being a low paid employee to being a freelancer.
