Brian Krogsgard’s interview with Matt Mullenweg, 2018 Recap
I’m cheered and hopeful that Mr. Krogsgard is correct and Post Status will soon return to form.

How We Added Content Personalization to WordPress’ Gutenberg
Innovative usage of what Gutenberg is really good at.

This project seems to have no relationship to that other than a similarity of intent. What’s really cool about the WPGlossary.net from the Anders Norén is that it comes with a slick interface for searching and is just really pretty.
