Thanks to someone throwing a rock through my car window, I’m in the wonderful process of adding security cameras and updating my Wi-Fi. For the first time I’m going to try using a Wi-Fi extender and see if that improves the signal and the other end of my house.

If that doesn’t work, I might be shopping for a new router. If there’s any place to talk/vent tech, it would be here.

@theofrancis interesting. Well, I am keeping in mind a return policy. What did you get? I assume you add that to existing router or does that come with one (stupid question alert)?

I point to this post also for the community who should also have been asking the same question for a number of years even before COVID.

The last couple of months I’ve had numerous discussions on this topic with longtime developers in the community. Those leaving the community for whatever reason or one thing, but not focus on whose entering.

Next time you go to a WordCamp look around and see how many people are there under the age of 25 not with parents. https://drupal.community/@ultimike/112479234829553220

And this isn’t just #Drupal #WordPress - other mostly older products and technology communities are realizing the same thing. It’s a bigger trend and I think bigger than (at least for some of these communities) simply what competitor you have to worry about.

At this point, if you go to #Bluesky just to document bad things happening to that particular social network or to report back to #Mastodon what people on a social network say about people here… I envy the time you have at your disposal.

Everything has an overhyped cycle (usually in the beginning of its introduction to a critical mass but not always).

If you’re reading this on Mastodon then you’ll likely rightly think about etc.

But also etc also had theirs. Maybe you weren’t around for them. And these (and more) have settled into reasonable realistic expectations. It’s a pattern.

Point? Maybe none. But pointing out overhype maybe is something some don’t bother with.

When it comes to I see:

  1. Glass half full
  2. Glass half empty
  3. Potential for glass to be great.
  4. Potential for glass to be misused.
  5. Want to know how the glass is made.
  6. Question if it's a glass.
  7. Where am I and why is there a glass in front of me?
