I’ve finally gotten around to refreshing this blog. It’s a fresh start, since prior posts are now quite old (almost a decade?) and probably not relevant anymore.

It now uses Jekyll as the static generator. Previously it used Octopress, but since that’s built on Jekyll, it seems like added complexity, and Octopress seems not to be under active development anymore.

The site (source code) is hosted on GitHub Pages.

Old-school social media

Hosting my own blog is more than just an early 2000’s nostalgia trip; it means that there’s no platform owner who will start requiring readers to sign up or ambush viewers with other popups halfway down the page. And, of course, I own the content.

100% human authored, original content

Everything here is written by me, Tom Whipple, a genuine human. :)
