I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.
This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

Standing up for students privacy an #etug Gasta story
One of the things I brought back with me from last years ALT-C in Manchester was the Gasta presentation format, pioneered by the Irish Learning Technology Association.

Year in Review (ongoing): https://known.kenbauer.me/2019/04/04/year-in-review-ongoing
A productive "quiet writing hour" which is 5:30pm-6:30pm before the #HomebrewWebsite Guadalajara meeting. I noticed that my update to @WithKnown was broken. I forgot to run the "composer update" from root.
