I don’t hate Gutenberg but it doesn’t help me write more productively and I do dislike that tools appear or disappear depending on where you click. Too much friction. Just give me a blank square to write in. Hello Classic Editor plugin.
Greta Thunberg talked at #COP24 and said to the politicians in attendance so many things I’ve thought. Good for her. Whoever smiled at her because, oh look, she’s 15, is demeaning her message. Nobody smiled at Jewish children during WWII. Her words are no less important.
