Spare time coding and publishing

Currently / idea stage

I’m restarting work on my long-time project The Local Yarn. This site will dual-publish to web and print, and include revision tracking as an integral part of the content. Lately I’m contemplating moving the project from using Pollen to my own Racket-based DSL.

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

I have a very lightweight email newsletter called Pollen Time for notifying people of upcoming events and projects.
