Simple stuff I should have done ages ago, but just realised it's trivial to change the background colour of 'category' pages in WordPress: wpbeginner.com/wp-themes/how-t

So here's my posts with a different colour background: dougbelshaw.com/blog/category/

I used the 'subtle pastels' colour scheme here, and applied it to some other categories as well as making the main theme off-white: schemecolor.com/subtle-pastels

When asked about fears of automation in 1969, Arthur C. Clarke famously said that we shouldn't worry about automation: "the goal of the future is full unemployment, so we can play." I have never seen his answer quoted in full.

Do you know someone who has recently claimed (UK welfare benefit) or helped someone else to claim it?

I'm leading an 11-week project to try and make it easier for the 25% of people who currently fail to register for UC remotely.

We're just into the prototyping phase and so are looking for (remunerated) user testers.

DM me if you've got leads. Boosts appreciated.

i may end up trying to write a longer-form post about this, but despite the urge to try to solve problems by writing code, there are *so* many ways for a tech-literate person to support existing activism that aren't writing a new app. just by knowing that linktree or buffer exists and helping set up accounts/content, you could make a huge impact for a group that already has expertise and connections in their area of interest.

Always look on the bright side: it's not as bad as the Black Death. 🌻

It's illegal to enter buildings in the zone as most of them are completely unstable, and due to a new zone administration there's typically no bribing your way out of a situation. Sometimes in the most unsuspecting places you may find street art left behind by a Stalker who risked arrest for something many will never see. Somewhat of a real life Easter egg, or a subtle nod to defiance: "You're not suppose to be here."
