This website is built by the Jekyll static site generator and hosted on an Ubuntu VPS at DigitalOcean (that’s a referral link). The slick pop-up footnotes are powered by Littlefoot. I use OwnYourGram to copy my Instagram posts here, Webmention.io to receive Webmentions, and Bridgy to receive Webmentions from Twitter and Instagram. Some other tools integral to my site workflow are Vim, SASS, and Git.
Headings are set in the Amaranth typeface.
I try to use Merlin Mann’s essay “Better” as a guideline (or maybe an excuse) for how to post here: quality is better than quantity. I don’t post much but I hope that what I do post is thought-provoking, or at least useful.
I don’t have comments here—my readership is small enough that it wouldn’t be worth the hassle to keep out spam. If you have a response to something I’ve written, please send your comment (or a link to your own blog post) via email or Twitter. You can also send a Webmention—my site doesn’t actually display them right now but it does receive them and if you send me one I’ll see it.
