Imagine if we had put 20 years of effort into making the internet a safe and productive place for people to live their lives instead of optimizing dopamine output from each individual interaction

@ghost_letters I find I often need to do small edits to old posts as links change, typos are caught and for a good number of other reasons. Hugo just didn't scale well for that. Add into it that even media management is much harder in Hugo and having a system to manage my content is something I've found extremely valuable.

No, FOSS solutions don't have to scale to GAFAM size. That said, they often do need to scale to small group (2-10 people) and all too often most FOSS solutions fail miserably at that.

@ghost_letters Old post here, as I find your profile, but I've been writing about this a lot last year after going from WP to Hugo and back (for a number of reasons including I work in WP). Here's one of the last posts I did on the topic, FWIW: chriswiegman.com/2021/08/why-s

My post today addresses a common issue I see in tech. TL;DR is right in the title. Yes, a college degree is still worth it. chriswiegman.com/2021/09/yes-a

You may think that I'm a sap
But I don't care about your app.
I would rather take a nap

@thomasfuchs I have a blog post I'm working on about privacy vs accessibility and why it's so hard to get the former if you need the latter. This type of thing is exactly why I'm writing it

Whwn we say don't trust a single company with all your data, we don't mean you should give up your #privacy to multiple corporations. We mean you should protect yourself from all corporation and not trust a single soul on this.
