I recorded a tutorial on how to use the #Drupal module Entity Reference Override.
This is a handy module if you need to override the value of an entity you're referencing. For example, if you want to provide a context specific bio for an author byline or adjust the title of professor being listed on a program page.
and the email@example.com
folks started talking the utility of a taxonomy of types of open source projects I found myself shouting to myself, "yes! yes! it's a thing! CommunityRule!"
For anyone going to DrupalCon next week, I'm co-organizing the Nonprofit Summit and I think it's going to be real informative. We're also setting up a directory people can opt into for networking and organizing.
Check it out!
A great op-ed piece by @jelkner on the need to push back against tech giants taking over public education and instead funding public (ie: free and open source) tool for public schools.
I tried installing it locally and it only took me a couple of minutes to get up and running. Really impressed with this project so far.

Redesign of a #FreeSoftware tool with a look behind the scenes as to how typography, spacing, color scheme etc is improved to meet users' needs for usability and freedom.

Mobilizon is now federating. It's inspiring to see the development of this community-driven tool steadily chugging along.
free software and going beyond the nonprofit industrial complex
my hope with #FreeSoftware has been that it can be a tool to support people who organize outside of or in subversion of the NPIC.
the completely grassroots group that relies on no outside grants or wealthy donors.
the scrappy nonprofit that is partially grant-funded but doesn't shy away from bold politics, direct action, etc.
the rank-and-file union contingencies/caucuses
I've seen these groups hit tech limitations
My published my first article on opensource.com!
Annotate screenshots on Linux with Ksnip
and more. The camp is free and all-day trainings are only $50 and I think even those I think have scholarships available.
I'm so glad GIMP has been forked. That name has upset me ever since I heard about the project.
And of course, the worldview of those insisting on keeping the name informs so much more about the project itself.
