Lots of catching up with people this week. It's Thursday night / Friday "morning" and I'm reflecting.
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.
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.
Why are these two sites not on Fission? Forestry needs to connect to a git provider is the short answer.
And now, to bed.
- 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) — 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.
