I've been quite inspired recently by finding a ton of cool personal websites and wikis and thought I would share my views on how freeing it is to make your own: ritualdust.com/craft/make-your

@ritualdust i got into the personal website rabbit hole about a year ago and i haven't looked back since. to be honest, the modern web is overrated and gentrified to the core where you have to accept cookies for everything ever as well as dealing with a load of bloat.

i'm glad i got into this rabbit hole, but i wish i was around in the 90's (2001 baby here, now 20 years old) so that i could have experienced the early days of the web instead of experiencing it through second hand nostalgia.

@rozina glad you went there, it is really bad indeed, I work as a software engineer making some of these apps for a company and it's draining my life force haha, it's so bad also how capitalism pushed everyone to become a "personal brand" and try to sell something. If there's resources or websites that helped you get into it without that previous knowledge feel free to share, I'd really like to make it as accessible as possible to new people :)

@ritualdust it sure is bad, and i don't really fancy becoming a personal brand, not to mention monetising hobbies because capitalism.

one of the things that helped me get into it was this essay: neustadt.fr/essays/the-small-w as well as browsing the brutalist websites website for design inspiration and reading books about net.art (specifically internet art by rachel greene)
