What is this website?

This website has one author: Dee Newcum. It's my personal notes on lots of topics.

It's part blog, part personal wiki — it's a "bliki".

Who is the target audience?

What does the content focus on?

I'm a hyper-generalist, my knowledge is very wide but often shallow.

My career is in software engineering, and I feel a kinship to engineering broadly (the engineering design process in general, but also structural engineering and materials science). I do a lot of DIY/maker stuff in my free time, particularly using wood, plastic, steel, etc. I'm a queer trans woman and am interested in political sociology, history, and various justice movements (disability justice, racial justice, economic justice, etc, from a lens that listens to and centers marginalized voices).

How is the site made?

The Markdown and HTML are hand-edited in Vim. Yes, I know the HTML is terribly non-compliant.

I prefer having my content stored in nested categories. I haven't found any CMS's that do that to my liking, so I just store files in plain directories. (If you know of a good one, feel free to message me. My existing category structure would have to be imported into the new CMS, of course.)

There is a very thin layer between the webserver and the filesystem, so it isn't entirely a static site.

Things I intend to improve:
