Back to Basics

For too long I’ve felt the pull of the earth drawing me back. The land is calling to me. It smells of plain-text, ftp and baked HTML. It is self-hosted and self-publishing. The tools I use to publish are simple: Emacs, Perl, Markdown – just enough Lisp and Perl to get by. Where I’m going there are no badges, widgets or ‘like’ buttons. No promoted tweets or banner ads. Only words and pictures and links. Back to basics.
