my very own digital rot
Some time ago now I started moving some articles from medium to this blog when doing this I realised I had completely broken my own links when I moved from Jekyll to eleventy.
It wasn’t a platform disappearing it was a mistake with one line of code.
This was a quick fix with netlify redirects but it shows how brittle the web can be.
The main reason I write on my own domain is to keep my content my own, we’ve seen other writing services (Posterous) close and I’m not about to let my content go the same way. From Why should I write at Medium.com? by Gavin Elliott.
Better control of my own content is one of the main reasons I wanted to replicate my articles;
- Preparing my first talk
- Steps for running an internal workshop for designers prototyping in code
- Weeknotes s01e04 — the_reboot.mkv
- Weeknotes s01e05— refact0r_y0ur_life_away.mpeg
- Weeknotes s01e06-h3althy_t3ns1ons.mp4
- Thoughts from DWP Digital design Patterns meetup 1
- What is a component in a design system?
- Story Sizing — the good the bad and the types
- Thoughts from DWP Digital design Patterns meet-up 2
- Reflections on running a first conference
- Building a community of speakers
Now to fix all the markdown issues and sort out the 50 drafts.
