What does Stack Overflow want to be when it grows up? • Coding Horror
Jeff Atwood, co-founder of Stack Overflow (used by gazillions of flummoxed coders, including me):
<p>I am honored and humbled by the public utility that Stack Overflow has unlocked for a whole generation of programmers. But I didn't do that.

• <em>You</em> did, when you contributed a well researched question to Stack Overflow.<br />• <em>You</em> did, when you contributed a succinct and clear answer to Stack Overflow.<br />• <em>You</em> did, when you edited a question or answer on Stack Overflow to make it better.

All those "fun size" units of Q&A collectively contributed by working programmers from all around the world ended up building a Creative Commons resource that truly rivals Wikipedia within our field. That's ... incredible, actually.

But success stories are boring. The world is filled with people that basically got lucky, and subsequently can't stop telling people how it was all of their hard work and moxie that made it happen. I find failure much more instructive, and when building a business and planning for the future, I take on the role of Abyss Domain Expert™ and begin a staring contest [quoting Nietzsche: "if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you"). It's just a little something I like to do, you know ... for me.

Thus, what I'd like to do right now is peer into that glorious abyss for a bit and introspect about the challenges I see facing Stack Overflow for the next 10 years.</p>


The fact that SO (as it gets called all over the place) is principally and was always intended to be a curated wiki and that it is so enormously useful, just like Wikipedia (even if one dislikes the sausage-making process in the latter), seems to me to indicate something important about curated wikis v pretty much every other form of unmediated content collection system.

Tightly curating knowledge is obviously a more bounded problem than lightly curating opinion (as in social media). But why does the latter break down so easily into abuse? Because of the light curating, or the nature of the content?

ACF (Advanced Custom Fields for WordPress Developers) v5.8 - Introducing ACF Blocks for Gutenberg
We believe that ACF Blocks is one of the more important features ever added to our plugin. It levels the playing field and allows more developers to take advantage of Gutenberg’s key feature.

You don’t need to be a JavaScript expert in order to create custom blocks. And you won’t have to radically alter your workflow. ACF Blocks will help you accomplish more, while avoiding the chaos of manual block creation.

We plan to include the ACF Blocks feature with both the free and PRO versions of ACF 5.8. You can expect that version to drop sometime in November.
