I run this site from my own dedicated server. It is built with the Hugo framework, and uses a custom theme.
Just another code-monkey that’s a bit over the whole tech scene. Don’t get me wrong, I still love some parts of it. I love the challenge that troubleshooting a broken function, or breaking into a poorly configured site. But what I don’t love is how condensed the whole net is. Only a handful of companies essentially rule the net, and I don’t believe they rule with the best of intentions. I don’t love that for so many people, their day-to-day life revolves around computers. In many ways, at least here in America, you have to have some kind of computer and internet access just to be a functioning member of society. I don’t think that’s good for us as a species.
I’m a firm believer in the IndieWeb movement. It should be obvious that the oligarchs won’t just give the users power over the internet, so it’s up to us to take it back. Simple as.
To help get away from some of this techno-claustrophobia, I’ve taken an interest in learning more about how pre-industrial people lived. I believe that some combination of traditional living (Subsistence farming), and modern life could be key to living a happier life.

What’s With The Domain Name?
This domain used to belong to someone who was once very dear to me. That person is gone though, so I took the domain to keep the memory alive.
