How this site is made
Besides giving me a place to publish the things I make for fun and share stuff I hope will be useful to other people, I hand write this website as an exercise in itself. In the past 20 years (!) my sites have gone through a lot of iterations on the tech stack side - the longest era being a 2012-2017 rails app on Heroku. Why build a site when there are far easier ways to do it (I ask this myself often)... is to have a place for me to experiment with the new technology.
So far I'm really having a lot of fun, mostly because of my obsession with publishing systems. (I'd also like to incorporate some of the ideas from programmable books / Pollen.)
If you have any suggestions for interesting things to try along these lines, send me a note! (Contact info below.) Thanks for reading!
