#openstreetmap never stops impressing me!
In the area where I live, where there is almost no data on Google Maps (took 2 years for them to put our house on the map), OSM has lots of details, such as ski trails and football fields.

See image, comparing OSM to Google Maps:

CryptPad is an #opensource collaborative editor (think: Google Docs/Drive) with a strong focus on #privacy. I have been using it for a while, and would like to recommend it to others as well!

You can try it here: cryptpad.fr/drive/

You can create and share text documents, sheets, presentations, code, kanban boards and more.

You can use it for free, but I recommend supporting them either by upgrading to a paid subscription, or by donating here: opencollective.com/cryptpad/

Wood stoves can provide a household with thermal energy for cooking and for space and water heating. Wood stoves equipped with thermoelectric generators also produce electricity, which can be more sustainable, more reliable and less costly than power from solar panels.

Trying out some tests with the Squire WYSIWYG
neilj.github.io/Squire/

Their demo used jQuery UI, which I felt was a tad overkill for my purposes. This one doesn't use any other library besides Squire and my own terrible hacks

I have a daydream where the world has ended
and I work in a bar.
you’d think I’d pick something else
but no, I wear a black uniform with too much cleavage,
the bar is lit up
by pink and yellow neon lights.
In my daydream the handsome monster asks me
‘what did you do, before the world ended?’ and I say nothing.

In web application development there are 3 groups you can empower and it's important to understand which group you are empowering.

1) the users
2) the producers
3) the geeks who develop/admin

I don't really like complaining about opensource work, because everyone is free to do what they want and share it as-this.

But to keep sane environments we need to keep good practices. The JS ecosystem is a real garbage.

When I have to run node/npm, I create a dedicated user PER PROJECT to git clone the sources and run npm in it because the huge mess is TOTALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO AUDIT.
