I've worked from home in some form since 2005. My home office is generally reserved for productive activities, which makes it a space that I go when I need to focus. I decided to give it a little makeover last year to make it a place that is a little more inspiring.
As my job responsibilities have shifted in the past six months, I have found myself struggling to identify which opportunities I should take on and which fall outside of my purview. So I have found myself saying yes to almost everything for fear that I might miss out if I say no.
Someone asked me this week: "What are some examples of open source software that most non-technical people have heard of?" I had a few answers off the top of my head, but not nearly enough. Anyone that uses a computer likely interacts with hundreds of open source components every day.
