Some of us started worker-owned ;-)

Seriously, this is an awesome evolution of a truly awesome company.

Curious how close to one-person one-vote Lullabot
is now and if joining Palante, Colab Coop, and Agaric in the "Drupal-inspired" worker cooperative world might happen!

My fifth and final post (bittersweet) in my series on Enhancing the Drupal Authoring Experience is now out.

I focus this last one on accessibility tools you can integrate into your site.

Many a11y issues are content issues, so keeping your site accessible means giving your authors the tools they need to keep it up.

One easy way to support cooperatives: use Meet.Coop's BBB instance or MayFirst's Jitsi instance instead of Zoom etc.
Then, get your cooperative or group to use them.
(Social.Coop members get a free Meet.Coop account.)

Is Google Analytics illegal?

Yes, said the Austrian Data Protection Authority and today the French DPA agreed!

Exciting times to be a European, privacy-focused web analytics project 🔥

Part 4 of my Enhance Your Authoring Experience is out.

This one fine tunes Drupal's admin pages, especially the Block layout page, which can be unnecessarily overwhelming for content editors.

Not that $600 or $1,200 a year are not also high for lots of community projects, but we feel it is important that community groups have the potential to shape a platform they rely on, and have as a option as well as better known WordPress, Ghost, etc SaaS.

We have not been promoting it much, but the Drutopia approach to cooperative cost-sharing for modern Drupal heavy-hitting has been slowly chugging along, proving itself viable even without the scale still envisioned for it.

@pixelfed is an actively developed federated (like Mastodon) image sharing platform (think Instagram, but open, ethical and privacy-respectful).

It’s getting better and better (it was very good when I joined a year ago), and pretty fast too!

Please give it a try and if you like it and wish to show appreciation or wish to support the project so it continues to grow and improve, you can back it up!
