I wrote a thing. Yes, it still happens sometimes! A look back at my career, and why I'm moving to YouTUBE full time at the end of May. It's a bit personal, totally understandable if you prefer to skip the (very) long read:

Introducing seeking-maintainers.net! 🎉

A few days ago, @kev asked the community for help maintaining his side-project, 512kb.club. This got me thinking.
