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!"
I just signed up for Bitwarden and imported my passwords from Buttercup and Firefox.
For Firefox, they even wrote their own tool to easily export my passwords because there are no longer supported add-ons.
It has a great #UX and seems to have a solid, ethical business model behind it.
Lots of great pieces have come out recently calling upon those of us in the free/open-source software to go further in making ethical tech.

a hopeful assessment of #OpenSource in recessions.
Since it's usually cheaper than proprietary software, projects can actually see a bump in usage.
Also, for those who go through unemployment, contributing to open source can boost someone's visibility and network connections to get a new job.

Has anyone seen this before?
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 recently learned about Zulip and just went through their tour.
It looks very promising - the friendliness of Slack, but #opensource and more structured. There's oftentimes way too much noise in Slack channels.
does anyone know of team #pomodoro apps?
I want to share what I'm working on and see what my colleague is up to since we're a distributed team. maybe even sync our pomos!
https://tomato5.io/ is the closest i've found, but it's just a little too limited and rough around the edges to be useful. doesn't seem to be maintained anymore either
Another great #Mastodon moment today.
I learned about an open source remoters club (organized on the #opensource alternative gettogether.community) and one person is the community manager of Thunderbird and another is a fellow ux architect working on Elementary OS. So great to meet like sweet, like minded folks in IRL through this platform.
2 problem spaces we see -
1. sites that need more flexibility than Wordpress
2. very simple pages that could be good for a static site generator, if the content management side was friendly for tech beginner/intermediate folks.
Bonus for each if it supports syndication to social media platforms.
Did you know that Habitica is #opensource? I'm giving it another go, in part because of this. I'm also considering starting a "party" with my family. Might form one with my coworkers too.
I am REALLY enjoying Mailspring, an #opensource email client.
With UI improvements going very slow with #Thunderbird I'm ready to switch to a clean modern interface.
