Did you know that #Zoom uses #XMPP for their chat? Isn't it ironic that while large parts of the software freedom movement consider XMPP as outdated and refuse to use it, companies building commercially successful proprietary and centralized solutions on top of it... 🤔 #OpenStandards #FreeSoftware

Write your own frameworks.

You learn a lot.
Your framework might solve a problem your ecosystem needs to have solved.
By your tenth one, you know enough to write one worth wide adoption.
Progress in our industry depends on all of us pushing it forward.

I have many friends telling me that they can’t bear wearing a mask, that it’s uncomfortable.

I wear a mask when I am out as I live in an apartment building, and because this virus can be so silent in how it travels and we DO KNOW WEARING A MASK REDUCES SHARING this virus. Do I look ridiculous? Probably. Do I care? Not really. I love my neighbors! I love the people I work with. I love my family. I don't want to bring this virus to them.

Help protect others. Be kind to essential workers.
