It’s with pleasure we welcome Daniel Schutzsmith and Nyasha Green to the Post Status contributor team this week. Daniel is taking point on curating our weekly Dev/Tech news and “cool tool” roundup. Nyasha and I are rebooting The Excerpt as a weekly podcast focusing on one or two key topics, from employment to business and WordPress development.
Previously David Bissett covered these areas for us as a prolific podcaster and superhuman news aggregator. We still have Olivia Bisset as our intern and post-production audio engineer, and she is terrific too!
Both Nyasha and Daniel have voices I’ve looked forward to hearing for a while, so it’s great to get to work with them a little at Post Status. Maybe you’d like to join us as well? Please get in touch if you have an article you’d like to write/co-write or an idea for a podcast episode you’d like to be on.
WordPress needs more and better conversations. Respect, cooperation, and appreciation for each others’ roles even across differences and real disagreements — is it possible? A baseline of trust, tolerance, and willingness to learn from those we disagree with is indispensable to any community or relationship if it’s to last. Our aim is to live by these values in the WordPress community.
I hope you can help us create the spaces and have the conversations necessary for trust to develop and disagreements to be as productive as possible.
