When I talk about getting out while I still can this is one of the main reasons why. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/dec/31/americans-seeking-renounce-citizenship-stuck
Today’s post is a look back at what actually was a pretty good year for us. https://chriswiegman.com/2021/12/so-long-2021/
Last week I got stuck on PHPCS. If you install your dev stack with Homebrew and you’re on macOS Monterey, here’s how you can fix PHPCS with the WordPress Coding Standards. https://chriswiegman.com/2021/12/using-phpcs-with-homebrew-on-macos-monterey/
Reading some long-ago bookmarked articles on Apple's privacy (CSAM) pivot. I came back to Apple because, largely, it was simpler for my family and arguably the best trade-off between Privacy and Usability available.
Yeah, I chose poorly.
Really wondering if going back to Google Workspaces would have been a better move and just staying all-in on Google. I'm really not sure it would be worse anymore and, at least with Google, I didn't need all Apple hardware.
I should probably close LinkedIn but, again, as an American especially if I lose my job I'll need another and fast. LinkedIn is good for that. For now I just use it to post blog posts, something I'm not sure I need to continue doing either.
I've kept two other SM accounts besides here, Twitter and LinkedIn. Twitter is a big one for me, especially after 8 years remote in the WordPress space. It's my watercooler and I've not found the fediverse to even come close to replacing it.
LinkedIn is another story. I keep it as I will eventually have to job hunt again. As a network it's less than worthless to me as it's filled with people and mindsets that I no long want anything to do with.
@robert Something of a follow-up to this, while Chad will probably never give up Linux, his move to iOS is no less interesting for many of the same reasons brought up in the post. https://twitter.com/chadmccullough/status/1475465254951862272
Today I talk about what I would want in the perfect WordPress development environment. https://chriswiegman.com/2021/12/the-ultimate-wordpress-development-environment/
