A view of the Lake District from Ulverston, the peaks have a bit of sugar on top at the moment.

Automattic has a pretty cool job going for work on integrating WordPress with matrix. They're looking for someone capable of working on multiple programming languages, especially PHP and JavaScript.

Time-tracking seems to be an important part of . Or at least Guerrilla Media Collective's implementation of it.

I seem to have an ingrained antipathy towards fine-grained time-tracking so it'll be good to read about its utility here - the main one being transparency and ensuring all work is recognised I think.

Granted, it's a pretty broad category, but who do you look to for commentary on 'the impact of technology on society'?

🎄 Boosts appreciated!

I just deployed this change yesterday so it's live at karrot.world

Next step is custom defined types, which is actually already needed coded.

What would be great is to have input from people/groups that might like to use it for stuff like community gardens, bike kitchens, mutual aid groups, food rescue..

Karrot provides democratic membership empowerment* + communication + task co-ordination features.

* to avoid saying "management"!

I've set up a basic automatic photo sync from my phone to NextCloud.

Chuffed to get that working.

I struggled in the past with photo syncing via syncthing for that some reason I've forgotten now, and it made me have to stick with Google Photos.

Still a few things to tweak, but good to have ditched Photos.
