Spare time coding and publishing

Currently / idea stage

I stream on Twitch on Thursday evenings at 7pm (Central time), mostly working on Racket projects. I also have a very lightweight email newsletter called Pollen Time for notifying people of upcoming events and projects.

I’m restarting work on my long-time project The Local Yarn (preview, source). The main differentiators are that the site will dual-publish to web and print, and that revision tracking is an integral part of the content.

I’d like to make a Lightweight image host so that it’s easy to upload, optimize, and use images on my websites.
