The compromise of the home server is a great read for everyone interested in , specifically cloud security.

Halfway through Geese Week I still have plenty to build on our browser extension.
The check in page loads data from the server now and all inputs have labels for accessibility.

Next up I have to make sure data is stored in the browser's local storage to avoid losing a user's progress. Implementing our design is last, but it will also have to happen until Friday's internal project demos. Better hurry. 馃弮鈥嶁檪锔

Day 2 of updating the browser extension:
Yesterday I split all code into its own repository. This is also important for others to build the extension.
Did you know: All Firefox extensions must provide code to Mozilla for them to allow it in their extension store?

Today I will make the check in page work. On this page one can update their Objective Key Results () to share progress with coworkers.
The current draft is too bulky, is missing labels and only loads placeholders.

It's Geese Week at my workplace ! The first week in a quarter we can work on a project of our choice.

My goal is to release an update of our browser extension. We already made many improvements but didn't finish a stable release.

Today's goal is to move all code into its own repository.

I set up a server for the .org chat protocol.

Instead of manually installing the server, the playbook can configure it for me. If I wish to change the server, I just re-run the playbook to configure new or existing servers.

Happy Open Data Day!

There are events ongoing worldwide to help newcomers get started with contributing to open data projects and helping governments making their open data better.

I almost always think less of people I know in person when I discover that they are actively posting on Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram.
I wonder if the same will apply for Mastodon at some point.

Mastodon is different for me as I am following people whose content I enjoy or find interesting. On other social media I most often find the person interesting but not all content they post.

Maybe channels like on PeerTube can help? Why would I be interested in someone鈥檚 every interest?

If my Mastodon feed ever becomes as irrelevant as my LinkedIn feed, just kill the server.

The platform is full anti-features like bulk connections, advertisements for their mobile apps and sharing of low quality articles. Tons of businesses and individuals are shouting for just a bit of everyone鈥檚 attention.

The second meetup for digital is about to start. I鈥檓 very excited for it and invited several of my coworkers because the last one was awesome.
