Ronnie Burt




This week, what’s inspiring Ronnie Burt, who leads the team at Automattic behind Sensei LMS.

A podcast worth listening to: 
I’m a sucker for good interviews. I rarely miss an episode of How I Built This with Guy Raz.

A concept worth understanding: 
I’ve been getting really into using Reusable Blocks lately—and I don’t know what took me so long! Using groups and patterns can really simplify updating content on a website on multiple pages or posts all at once. Totally worth checking out if you haven’t already.

A Twitter account worth following: 
It does make you feel a little small and insignificant, but @NASAWebb is a great Twitter follow. Their alt-text descriptions and new ‘sonifications’ of photos are exciting models for improving web accessibility.

An article worth reading: 
There have been dozens of articles about employers monitoring remote employees in the last few weeks. This one by the BBC is a good overview. I’m glad to see this discussion happening more visibly. Trust is empowering.

A habit worth forming: 
I feel I do my best work when I take time every day to think about work away from my desk. For me, it is a daily walk or run—usually listening to a work-related podcast. Blocking that time off on the calendar is key.
