I continue to be impressed by the growth of #WordPress as an #opensource "publishing layer". It now powers 39.5% of top 10 million websites and, perhaps more interestingly, is now used by more sites than those that do NOT use a content management system (CMS).

I also apparently have a “public identifier” of

I'm loving that OBS Studio
now has built-in "virtual camera" support in version 26. This allows you to use OBS Studio as a "camera" inside of Zoom and other video apps, giving you the flexibility and capabilities OBS has in your meetings and webinars - https://obsproject.com
[NOTE: Microsoft Teams and Skype do not yet support virtual cameras, so it won't work in those apps.]
New audio: Will Twitter's #Fleets bring the "Story" format to Twitter? Or will they be gone in a fleeting moment?

@hedgedoc - FYI, the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is using the current CodiMD (your version) for note-taking at the IETF 109 meeting this week (as they did earlier this year for IETF 108). On https://datatracker.ietf.org/meeting/agenda/ there is an icon for notes. The hover text still says "Etherpad for note-takers", but it is in fact your version of CodiMD. And perhaps before IETF 110 in March 2021 the back-end will be updated to your new HedgeDoc version. (I'm not involved with that aspect.)
Welcome the #HedgeDoc account :)
We were formally known as #CodiMD, but due to some name conflicts, we decided to give ourselves a new name and a much cuter logo.
Who wants an old document when they can have a hedgehog?
You can read a bit more about it on our new history page: https://hedgedoc.org/history/
