Remember how MySpace was the online bedroom of us millennials adolescents? The automatic music player that welcomed friends and random visitors, the CSS copy pasting to give the space a unique style, the ugliest photos of the ugliest moments with friends.
I miss those times, when everything was so naive. After years struggling with different social media, I've decided to reclaim my space on the web and set up a new home to publish some writings.
I built the website following the Indie Web principles, and it will be a complete work in progress, adding something new everytime I publish a new post. To start I used Hylia, an Eleventy starter kit that speed up going in production through Netlify: in 5 minutes I was ready to blog.
I've been in this industry for 10 years now, and I have accumulated a lot of experience that I want to share. I have some strong opinions about the state of this new era of web development, I want to share those too.
I also feel the urgency of writing, and returning to the blog form seems the perfect fit to find a way of expressing myself.
