I’m a blog. I haven’t posted anything for a long while. Busy elsewhere. But at least I’m… fediversed … fedivated… part of the federation… social.

Glitching out on the Fediverse

As one can tell, I show up once a year on this blog to shave my beard off. I had hope to share more. And I did for a while… just somewhere else.

A relatively new and young ( a 1.5 and 4.5 year old ) family has a tendency to do that. I come back here not to post so much as to look back at my archive. I might come back and write more, but you might need to wait 3 years, give or take.

In the meantime, I am still tinkering on pet projects.

Enter the Fediverse

If you haven’t been paying attention to Mastodon and the Fediverse, I recommend you do. Decentralized social media is cool. With the help of a a project called Shuttlecraft, I now to have my own plot of Federated digital land. Come by won’t you?

Enter Glitch

With Shuttlecraft came a re-introduction to Glitch. I was completely unaware what they were up to, and that’s a bad on my part. Because while the internet is opening new languages, as someone who want to put something on the net, I felt you had two choices: a webhost that is still kind of antiquated, which a limited support of antiquated services, and going all cloud all the time – which can get costly.

Then there is glitch. A webhost that’s kept up. Technical enough for developers getting into things like react & node.js, but not uber technical that you need to spin up cloud instances and install every Unix package and then configure your choice of webserver from scratch.

If you haven’t taken a look at ethernick.com in a while, swing by there too, won’t you?

Nap time is over

Well, it looks like nap time is over, and I’ve got to get the little one. See you again in Movember.
