I gave a talk back in Oct 2019 about #opensource licensing evolution.

I have a Ghost Pro-powered links / newsletter / subscription thing now. I wrote a first post, and it has a couple of interesting links. Never mind about the monkey. https://bmann.ca/yaptp/

It’s a rainy cold day, but the cherry blossoms are coming out.

Maybe the interesting divide has become "Do you get most of your 'apps' through an app store or a web browser?" If the answer is the latter, then the follow-up question "Which browser?" is increasingly "Chrome." So oddly, Safari has the most influence on the platforms where developers are already used to using the app store as an escape hatch. Maybe the real question is: why write an Android app anymore? Just write a PWA, convert it to a TWA, and skip having a separate Java/Kotlin codebase.

Fascinating site on practical methods for social convening, composing individuals into dyads into “crews” into “congregations”. Mostly it suggests how deep the “skill tree” can be for something seemingly so “innate” as social convening. (via @tayroga)
