Question for you all. I am thinking of moving from jonobacon.org to jonobacon.com. I have a few goals with this:

1. Whenever someone lands on a .org URL (e.g. http://www.jonobacon.org/2016/05/18/kindness-and-community/) it will re-direct to .com (e.g. http://www.jonobacon.com/2016/05/18/kindness-and-community/)
2. I ideally don't want to lose any of my Google juice. I just want to replace the .org results with the .com results.

I am using Wordpress to power my site. Any recommendations on how I can accomplish this?

Some thoughts on kindness and how it relates to community, illustrates by the events of this last week: http://www.jonobacon.org/2016/05/18/kindness-and-community/
On Friday last week I flew out to Austin to run the Community Leadership Summit and join OSCON. When I arrived in Austin, I called home and our son, Jack, was rather upset. It was clear he wasnR…

Wonderful to see Mozilla continuing to support open source projects with MOSS - https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2016/05/11/mozilla-open-source-support-moss-now-open-to-all-projects/ - some of you should apply!
Last year, we launched the Mozilla Open Source Support Program (MOSS) – an award program specifically focused on supporting open source and free software. The ...

+Jono Bacon, +Jeremy Garcia, +Bryan Lunduke, and +Stuart Langridge bring you Bad Voltage episode 65, in which we have now basically become a show about guitars, there is a great deal of argument and fighting about whether companies screw us because they're incompetent or because they're evil, and also:

- 00:02:20 +Nest decide to remotely shut down purchasers' Revolv home hubs with minimal notice. The internet gets very cross. Nest begrudingly decide to give refunds. Is this a harbinger of bad things to come, where devices we buy require an online service for no reason and stop working because the company get bored? Or is this just the price we pay for having new stuff which can be controlled from anywhere and update on the fly? Where's the consortium awarding "this doesn't shut down if the company does" brand marks?

- 00:31:55 Jono reviews the MOD Duo stompbox, a multi-effect guitar pedal funded on Kickstarter and based on Linux and open source software

- 00:45:19 To answer our questions about the MOD Duo, we talk to company founder Gianfranco Ceccolini about the software and hardware inside the box and their views on openness

- 01:02:15 How do we attract the next generation of open source enthusiasts? Do we need to, or are we beyond that now? What's stopping this happening?

The Community Leadership Summit is happening in May in Austin and we have an awesome event lined up. Fantastic keynotes, an unconference format, great social events, and more (all before OSCON in the same venue). Also, an entirely free event. Come and learn and share community, developer, and participant leadership and growth. If you can come out, go and register for free at http://www.communityleadershipsummit.com/
