Welcome back to the Micro Monday email newsletter! After a break for the holidays, we’re looking forward to sharing more about the latest Micro.blog news and posts from the community.
🎙️ On this week’s Micro Monday podcast, Jean MacDonald talks with Jan Erik Moström:
Jan Erik Moström is a computer science professor in Umeå, Sweden, as well as an avid photographer with an interest in martial arts. We talk about the talented photographers on Micro.blog, how the geographic diversity of the platform has grown, and why Jan Erik likes Hugo.
🎙️ The transcripts for several recent episodes of Micro Monday are now online, including last month’s interview with Amanda Rush. Amanda says to Jean:
So my work is helping other people, and that could be anybody from website owners to plug-in authors for WordPress, theme authors, et cetera, to make their stuff accessible for everyone. Not just for people with disabilities, because accessibility is actually beneficial to everybody else as well.
