Lots of catching up with people this week. It's Thursday night / Friday "morning" and I'm reflecting.

Today (Thursday, that is), I met up with DH for coffee, which had me reflect back to [[Finhaven]] and the path that has lead here to [[Fission]].

Had a call with Amanda K one morning, sent her a link to [[When Tailwinds Vanish: The Internet in the 2020s]]. She was interested in my blog layout here and was asking about whether it needed a dev or not.

That led me over to the original [[Simply Jekyll]], since this site is super customized and in a private repo. I forked it into a public repo here: https://github.com/bmann/simply-jekyll

And then I setup [[Forestry]] so that Amanda could use it "without a dev". Deploy is [[Netlify]], because Simply Jekyll won't run on Github Pages. I'll need to do a proper HOWTO and properly setup the forked repo as a template repo to make it easy for people to run their own version. Sample site up here: https://quizzical-bartik-446efa.netlify.app

That's one framework [[Jekyll]], a free tier git code hosting with [[Github]], a second free tier commercial service [[Forestry]], and then a third free tier build/hosting service in [[Netlify]]. That's a lot of heavy lifting for "just" a blog + notes. [[Forestry]] from a day to day, week to week perspective is the most valuable part of that: the actual editing app.

And tonight, I just finished pushing a new site for [[Cobuilding]] live. [[Forestry]] setup was a little trickier because [[Minimal Mistakes]] has complicated Front Matter at times, I'll go back to it in a bit.

Why are these two sites not on Fission? Forestry needs to connect to a git provider is the short answer.

I'm doing some tinkering with [[Frontity]], a [[React]] front end framework designed to use Wordpress as a Headless CMS, that will be a good fit for hosting on Fission.

And now, to bed.

  • Read: New UK tech regulator to limit power of Google and Facebook

    • The framing of this is all wrong. It's all about innovation, competition, consumer choice, growth. It should be about [[liberation]], [[user freedom]], [[agency]] and [[sustainability]]. Just sounds like it'll be a weak opt-in 'code' that even if followed just moves the deckchairs around while the ship is sinking.
    • [[My notes]]
  • Came across [[Felt]]. Worker-owned coop building "free and open source tools for building customizable self-governing communities". Do wonder it could be better/more quickly achieved by using/contributing to existing software.

    • It's a customizable open source software platform, a community and business, a co-op of worker-owners, and hopefully one day a platform co-op (communities owning themselves? absurd) β€” all with a purpose that puts people first. If we do it right, Felt is tech that feels good.

  • Playing some more with [[getting knowledge maps in to my weeknotes]]. This time, running org-roam-graph in the weeknotes file. I like this as a quick starter - it shows me the images based on what I've noted and linked, and serves as a good visual aid - these work well for me. It I wanted to spruce it up after the fact, I could.
