Basic break down of what Bill C10 is about for those of our listeners who reside in Canada.
Online Word Camp scheduled to run from June 7 – June 9.
Back up your entire computer with a USB drive – this is more of an ad than an article, but skipping over the ad bits, I was able to gleam that this USB stick backs up everything to a cloud. If you are already using a cloud to back things up, this could be a great idea for you.

Ujwal Thapa, co-founder of WordPress Nepal Community has passed this last week. This is a link that talks a little bit about him for those who were aware of and/or knew him.
Google’s Chrome Canary now has a feature flag to allow users to opt out – Chrome Canary is the raw and unfinished browser of the Chrome we know and love, and the fact that there is a feature flag allowing users to opt out is, in my opinion, a positive thing! Perhaps the opt out flag showing up here means that we will see it in the fully completed Chrome sooner than we had hoped!
Heads up for everyone using Windows – unveiling of new Windows is coming on June 24th!

Google voices concerns about Bill C10 in Canada and the effects that it might have on both creators and viewers. (basic break down of Bill C10 in the extras) It seems that Google is mostly worried about their algorithms being negatively impacted, but the concern is valid about the effects that this bill may have on both creators and viewers.
Gutenberg brings in an Image duotone filter for WordPress 5.8! This could be lots of fun for people who use Gutenberg.
