We're paying a premium for co-workers

We all need co-workers. Some get them for free. Others have to pay for them. We’re trending towards paying for them. As workers from home, we often work in complete isolation. Most of us like it that way. The rest of us are lonely. To get some much needed interaction with other like-minded humans we turn to Slack, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, iMessage – pretty much anything that gives us hope, connection, acceptance, and value – the four pillars of a healthy human. That works, mostly. But not really. For many, the only option is to pay for co-workers. Need community? Join the Changelog Community for free -- it costs zero.

"This is a call for help."

Jürg Lenhi, writes in this tweet thread: Let's talk about open-source. I've been developing and maintaining Paper.js for years. It has 8,700 stars on GitHub. Multiple big companies have done projects and products with it. Yet donations and sponsored features are very few, and I need to accept other work to sustain a living. There are several more tweets that follow this up with more details from Jürg, but what I found missing, is an awareness of what a healthy relationship for him and this project looks like. If we've learned anything from Request For Commits, it is that money doesn't solve the open source maintainer problem, so donations or Patreon alone aren't a fix. (Thanks to Cody for sharing this in our community Slack.)

Ember Icon emberjs.com

Ember team releases version 3.0 of their ambitious web framework

Today the Ember project is releasing version 3.0.0 of Ember.js, Ember Data, and Ember CLI. Ember 3.0 doesn't introduce any new functionality, instead it focuses the framework by removing long-deprecated APIs and support for legacy platforms. A major version release with no new functionality: bold move. Perhaps a winning strategy if it can garner similar praise as Apple's Snow Leopard update to macOS (nee OS X). Ember is like the Energizer Bunny of web frameworks. Can you believe the team has been working on it since 2011? That's like forever in webdev-years.
