Goodbye, big tech. Hello self-hosting. The fall out of the past year has resulted in my migrating away from Big Tech and their Cloud ecosystems. As of right now almost everything I use online is self hosted an operating from my house. Including this blog now.
My instincts told me to pull away from large technology companies that have decided to handle things in a totalitarian manner. Kind of funny for most of my life, I hosted and maintained my own internet presence independent of these companies. I got lazy started relying on them. And they have since betrayed that trust.
Since I am now hosting my blog myself have no worries about being shut down based on my own particular viewpoint. I have always preferred to be able to express my opinion without being persecuted for it like this country supposedly set up to be. But ever since November of 2020 that has changed. I recognize even being self-hosted I could be persecuted for wrong think. But such is life.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am extremely opinionated and typically have little regard for whether my opinion is accepted or not. I believe the truth is the truth, whether it is preferred or despised.
As always, I have plans to use this blog, but there may be some gaps between posts.
