  3. Very interesting post about the privacy implications of indieweb techniques, especially backfeeding. TBH I hadn’t thought about that yet. 🤔 https://sebastiangreger.net/2018/05/indieweb-privacy-challenge-webmentions-backfeeds-gdpr/

  4. I did some housekeeping over the holidays and ported my website to Eleventy! The previous version was based on Jekyll - which is fine but got a bit slow, and since I don’t know Ruby, the generator was always a bit of a mystery to me. Eleventy runs on node / Javascript, so I have more control over whats going on.

    I have also switched to Netlify for hosting - it’s super developer friendly and makes a lot of difficult tasks just work out of the box. Loving it so far!

    I have some ideas for the notes section, the webmentions and a few other #indieweb features I’d like to explore, but for now I’m pretty happy with how the site turned out.

    As always, the source code is public on Github, if anyone is interested in the specifics. 😉
