I have a personal website where I post art and blog. A while back I changed it to generate static pages on build rather than serve live from a database; I consider this a win for simplicity.
But now I want to play around with webmentions and other decentralized social stuff, and the idea of having to bring back a persistence layer is making me shudder.
I wonder how folks with (mostly) static sites balance this.
Oh no, it's an #intro post. I'm Jess.
I draw. I make websites. I make interactive art installations. One of them is free software that you can run if you have a Kinect or similar.
Sometimes people like the stories I tell about tech. I'm sure they'd tell me if they didn't... I think that makes me a Noted Tech Speaker in NYC.
