My friend Craig Nuzzo and I host a bi-weekly podcast in a conversation format. We have a range of topics from open-source technologies to coffee. Archive.org hosts the audio files, and our website is primarily a place to keep feeds up to date. Particularly mp3 and ogg feeds for the DIY people, and also google and itunes feeds, which we're still kind of stuck on while we build up accounts on those platforms so we can point to our feeds. Soon, we will be updating fonts and logos here and potentially embedding a Disqus comments section.
The site is built on Jekyll and hosted on GitLab Pages. Since the site, at this point, only needs to host XML files for the podcast catchers, a static site serves this purpose wonderfully. It's lightweight and fast, easy to maintain, and since the RSS feed just needs to point to where files are hosted, we can host our audio files on Archive.org for free as well, and run a hobby-podcast by only paying for the recording equipment. This a very fun project!
I like to consider myself a mild Privacy and Security Advocate. In my free time, I enjoy keeping current with the news related to major security vulnerabilities, violations of privacy on a large scale, how and why these occur, and the measures to protect myself and those around me as best as possible from these. I get a kick out of finding alternative technologies that allow me to live a modern life, technologically speaking, without the privacy invasion from some of the major tech conglomerates.
I also enjoy cooking, reading, and running.
