As we start 2023, it’s the perfect time to reflect on what the last few years have brought to us. The pandemic has brought us closer together globally. Conferences and meetings moved to virtual platforms lowering the geographic barrier to participating and collaborating. Many of us moved to remote work and embraced asynchronous communication with our teams. We have met people across the globe whom we would have never had the privilege to meet.
Open source helped forge the way for inclusive platforms and really helped to create that world stage.
Sowing the seeds of open source
Much like our unofficial logo, the dandelion, we are looking to spread the seeds of open source. We can blow the seeds organically like the wind, but also intentionally by blowing the seeds in a deliberate direction. We welcome articles about open source, open culture, and open practice from all open source practitioners.
Popular writing topics for 2023
Our readers continue to be interested in stories about open source. They love to know about the hows, the whys, and what solutions open source can bring to their lives.
We foresee some of these as being popular topics for 2023:
- Home automation
- Raspberry Pi
- Edge computing
- and more!
Along with all of those brilliant topics, I’d also love to broaden the scope of topics to also include:
- Open hardware
- Accessibility in digital assets
- What do you love the most about open source?
- How are you addressing DEI?
- And, of course, we’d love to hear about your favorite open source project.
