When you are sleeping, you consolidate memories of the day. When you take a break, you recover energy for the next unit of work. When you don't push your mind to look outside, it has a chance to look inside.

Dismissing boredom as symptom of a lack of inspiration is shortsighted. Boredom can be part of a pretty creative and productive cycle, too. But it is everyone's choice whether to participate in such a cycle.

A few ideas for online volunteer opportunities, if you're stuck at home and want to donate time to worthy causes:

I know the headline is "NPM joins GitHub", but it's hard not to read it as "Microsoft acquires Javascript"

@daz Honestly, I'd say it's mostly Satya Nadella's doing. He's focusing more on cloud computing, and the cloud's lifeblood is almost completely open source software. Having GitHub and npm gives them clout in that sector.

How did Microsoft go from hating open source and wanting to destroy it, to now owning the two biggest centralised repositories and hubs for open source development?

I just tuned in to a PWA meetup being hosted by Samsung. I'm all in on PWA, but I am worried it won't get the support it deserves from Apple. The experience is definitely second-class on iOS and I don't see they have any incentive to change that while their app store dominates. PWA needs to be standard on all platforms for it to succeed.

Over the last 10 years I've moved my personal website from Drupal, to Jekyll, to WordPress. I'm done with self hosting wordpress. I'm done with trying to keep a Linode online. I'm thinking of moving back to Jekyll, but with the proliferation of static site generators now, I'm wondering if that's the best choice?

Something like or the medium editor, except it saves markdown files in a GitHub repo and I can access as a PWA on any device?
