What to put on the Homepage?

I redesigned my site. This is my microblog, where I will be posting ideas, news, etc. It is archived. There is also a blog blog which contains longer articles. This site is also a proof-of-concept of a person-centric "social network" profile. While I'm working on making this process smooth for me, as a programmer, I would also like to extend this experience for non-programmers after the proof-of-concept is solidified. I believe there are certain workflows that are productive & encourage flow of expression for people with or without technical persuasion.

Here's the source code for this site.

Naming Conventions

I've been experimenting & making progress with Naming Conventions. Naming conventions for immutable entities has proven to reduce incidental complexity. I'm working on fleshing out the last details & a whitepaper. Please stay tuned. This practice has helped me remove incidental complexity from my codebases.

Svelte

I'm also a fan of Svelte (v3) & Sapper. Svelte is provides truly reactive stores & html components. Html components mean it's easy for programmers & non-programmers (e.g. designers) to work with. Svelte is compiled, resulting in a payload that is small, fast, & memory efficient.

Holochain

Lately, I have been turned onto Holochain. Thanks to Eric Yang, founder of Junto for introducing me to this technology.

I've read through:

I encourage you to read these papers, as they explain the state of distributed networks & the innovations that Holochain & the Holo currency bring.
