I’ll start writing here explaining why i’m choosing to host a static website in 2016 with Medium and all thoses content providers that can host almost anything.
My reason is pretty simple, since the beginning of the internet, a lot of companies hosted websites, hotsites, social profiles and content online for free, but, while it seems a good thing to do, there is a saying that when you are not the customer, you are the product.
Well, i’m tired of being the product when i’m actually building content, over the past decade i’ve lost a lot of things i’ve built just because a company run out of business, or they changed completely the way they worked.
I’m tired of that, and from now on all the things I want to persist over time will be published right here.
This website is hosted on Amazon Web Services, purely on S3 running jekyll as the backend for html generation.
