The Dev Blog stopped making sense to me a while back but I’m persisting while I figure out some organizational things and data stuff.
But, one thing behind it is that it’s a static site. It uses Spress to generate all of these delightful posts from markdown files that I make up whenever I have a hankerin’ to do so.
It’s wonderful. Complete control and the ability to create ridiculously optimized html.
But it also lacks the random nature of life that I love. I must always tell it what to do. Make this file, build this site, upload these files, etc.
I suppose this is good for 99% of people and websites in the world but it’s not good for me all the time.
Life, for me, has become databases, text files and equations. Past that it is a study of randomness and the soul-how the organic flows through time and interacts with forces that it can’t control.
Once I’m done with this file, it’ll be saved then built. It will not change forever. However, due to the flexibility of raw files and data, it can be carried with me forever and displayed whenever I want.
Dynamic, however, relies on elements above and beyond our control. It’s no longer just a text file but a process, a server, bits of code.
Not that there’s anything wrong with that. This is, basically, what the web has become.
In other news, I don’t know where I’m going with this.
