#5 – Robert Jacobi on Why He’s Putting Gutenberg First

Jukebox

About this episode.On the podcast today we have Robert Jacobi. Robert is Director of WordPress at Cloudways. He’s been working with open source software for almost twenty years, and has been the president of Joomla, a member of Make WordPress Hosting and contributor to ICANN At-Large. He is well known for his public speaking about open source and so the discussion today is broad and thought provoking. We talk about Robert’s ‘Gutenberg First’ approach in which he places the WordPress Block Editor at the heart of all that he does. He sees Gutenberg as a critical component for WordPress’ future; a future in which as yet unimagined technologies will be built on top of Gutenberg and leverage the ‘atomic’ way data is stored. This leads to a discussion on how 3rd party developers will be able to use Gutenberg as an application platform, with unique pathways to create, store and display content. The heritage of Gutenberg’s development is also discussed. Right from the start we knew that the intention of the project was ambitious; it’s aim to become a full site editor was explained at the outset. This has led to comparisons with other editing tools and Robert takes on why he thinks that the incremental steps that the Gutenberg project has taken are making it a vital part of WordPress. We also look forward and get into the subject of how technology never stands still. The underpinnings of WordPress are shifting. New skills and tools will need to be learned, but that does not mean that existing ones are obsolete.Shifting gears, we move into community events and how we’ve managed events during the last year. Robert is a huge proponent of in-person events, and is hoping for their return. He loves the accidental situations which arise when you’re in the same space as so many other like-minded people. Perhaps though, there’s a place for hybrid events; events in which there’s in-person and online happening at the same time? Towards the end we chat about the plethora of mergers and acquisitions which are happening right now, as well as a discussion of Openverse, a search engine for openly licensed media, which was launched with little fanfare recently.Useful links.Openverse Robert's website

#71 mit ROBERT JACOBI Buchverlosung REBOOT

SAATKORN

REBOOT - Der Code für eine widerstandsfähige Wirtschaft, Politik und GesellschaftRobert Jacobi führt ein spannendes Leben: als Founder und Managing Partner von THE NUNATAK GROUP berät er mit seinem Team Unternehmen und öffentliche Institutionen in Fragen der Digitalisierung. Sein Background als Wirtschafts-Journalist (Süddeutsche Zeitung) und Harvard-Absolvent und Familienvater ist die Grundlage für sein Buch "REBOOT - Der Code für eine widerstandsfähige Wirtschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft". Ein Buch, welches nicht spalten, sondern zusammenführen soll. Diese Einstellung gefällt mir und so kommt es, dass wir hier im SAATKORN Podcast #71 über REBOOT sprechen. Die Corona Pandemie deckt gerade viele Mißstände auf und führt auf vielen Ebenen zu frustrierenden, manchmal geradezu schrecklichen Erlebnissen. Die andere Seite aber ist: die Pandemie zwingt uns, in vielerlei Hinsicht auch neu zu denken. Am Deutlichsten wird das wohl im SAATKORN-Kontext beim Thema "remote work". Wenn man die Pandemie so betrachtet, ist es jetzt ein günstiger Zeitpunkt über eine Neuordnung unseres ökonomischen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Lebens nachzudenken. Und genau das tut Robert in seinem REBOOT-Buch. Im SAATKORN Podcast #69 sprechen wir über diese Ansätze und Robert zeigt anhand einiger Beispiele auf, wie unser Leben zukünftig besser gestaltet werden könnte. Hier ein paar Links zum Thema: Robert Jacobi auf LinkedIn REBOOT Website THE NUNATAK GROUP Im Podcast verlosen wir 3 druckfrische Ausgaben von REBOOT.Also viel Spaß mit Robert Jacobi im SAATKORN Podcast #71!
