I translated my bachelor's thesis about open source

Jul 2, 2020
I went on my pretty much annual summer cottage trip last week and during that week I managed to be relatively productive in terms of doing a bit of writing. More specifically, I did an English translation of my bachelor's thesis, which I originally wrote in Finnish throughout this spring. Writing that thesis was a fun process and although I did have some issues finding relevant sources, I am quite proud of what I ended up writing. Read more ...

Introduction to Gemini and the Small Internet

May 17, 2020
I recently read about Gemini, a new internet protocol that aims to do things kind of similar to the web but while also being more simple. I found it quite interesting and ended up spending a good while exploring the small constellation of servers hosting content over Gemini. I’ve found it quite refreshing and nice and would recommend checking it out. However, while talking with a friend (hi, Nezchan!)

This website has no comments

Dec 1, 2019
If you've browsed through my posts on this website, you may have noticed that there is no comment box underneath my posts for people to leave feedback. There's a few reasons why that is the case, and I figured I'd write a bit about those reasons. Technical concerns Originally my plan for this blog was quite a bit different than what it is now. When I decided to set up my own website, I had been doing a web server programming course and my original plan was to code a blog system with a CMS of my own design, user accounts, comments and probably way more than that.
