Dries tries cross-posting

Dries Buytaert wrote about how he wants to cross-post from his Drupal blog to Facebook. My experience with cross-posting to silos is that it doesn’t work. I wrote a comment on his post relating my experience. (No fancy tech, just copy/paste.)
Hi Dries — I use Facebook and Twitter, and have no plans to stop either, but the primary place I write is my blog. I tried to make cross-posting work, for years, and finally realized it cant work, unless each of the silos want it to, and of course none of them do.
I also included Medium in my attempt to set up a cross-posting system.
I wrote this blog post when I gave up.
I do however mirror my linkblog to both Twitter and Facebook, and the Links tab on my blog, and its own RSS feed. I guess that’s a POSSE approach. I use my own linkblogging software, Radio3.

New open source platform offers secure, self-hosted collaboration

As businesses are keen to embrace flexible working and digital transformation, there’s increased focus on collaboration and sharing of information. But with existing regulations like HIPAA and upcoming ones like GDPR it’s important to keep collaboration secure. German company Nextcloud is launching a solution in the form of a self-hosted, open source platform offering end-to-end encryption, video and text chat, and enhanced collaboration. Nextcloud 13 is an enterprise-ready solution which can encrypt data on a per-folder level rather than all-or-nothing approach. It doesn’t require users to remember or exchange passwords, or re-uploading of data on sharing. Other features include an… [Continue Reading]

Creating a Living Style Guide with Open Social

The following blog was written by Drupal Association Signature Supporting Partner, Open Social by GoalGorilla.
A living style guide – a way to control markup or CSS – has been making a name for itself. And for a good reason; they’re an important tool for web development. They keep developers in sync, communicate design standards, and help organize complex interfaces. In this post, I want to discuss how and why living style guides are important and how to implement one for Open Social using Drupal for software.
We’re using a living style guide because it serves as a valuable internal resource for development; we’re able to write reusable and consistent code that’s easy to maintain. And it’s a great external resource for client deliverables. Ready to see how to make a living style guide work with Drupal software? Let’s go!
Moving From Static to Dynamic
We didn’t always rely on a living style guide.

Mozilla announces an open gateway for the internet of things

Apple, Google, Amazon and Samsung have all been working hard to create their own standard to control all the connected devices around your home. Mozilla just announced that anybody can now create an open gateway to control the internet of things. The organization also confirmed that it is still working on a set of frameworks and open standards so that we don’t end up with an internet of things controlled by big tech companies.
Connected devices are great, until you realize that your connected thermostat only works with the Amazon Echo and your connected lightbulbs only work with Siri and the Home app.
Accessory makers also don’t necessarily want a handful of big tech companies to control the internet of things. Tech giants could end up charging expensive licensing fees to work with their ecosystem. And customers end up having to make tough decisions.
Mozilla is a big proponent of the open web.
