This list is a list of things that I would love to influence. It’s a wish list of change.
Hearken now unto my voice, I will give thee counsel, and God shall be with thee…
— Exodus 18:19a
That Bible verse is from the story of Moses’ father-in-law meeting up with the Israelites as they travel through the wilderness to the promised land. His name was Jethro, and he offered a suggestion to Moses that greatly improved his leadership.
As a Christian, I like to choose names that have a root in Bible stories, and I was hoping this would be a catchy, fun name for the list. Really, I just hope that I have at least one good suggestion that works out like Jethro’s.
Why the List?
I had many goals for this blog. One of the main ones was to connect with other Open Source enthusiasts. But, another is to have a positive influence myself. I would hope that others find some of the information on this blog helpful and makes their life easier. I would hope that this list takes the positive influence a step further. We’ll see where it goes.
