At the dentist on Friday:
A Herbert Grönemeyer song played on the radio and my dentist started whistling along while I was on the dentist’s chair.
I briefly started talking about WordPress alternative with @persillie the other evening.
Downsides of WordPress:
- It’s slow
- It’s not easy enough to use for non-techies
- Adding a shop could be a lot easier
She mentioned Squarespace:
I like the user interaction of #squarespace – but you need to be a US, Canadian, Irish or british resident to use the shop.

I found two articles with further ideas to explore:
Statamic, Craft, Ghost, Kirby, Perch, Jekyll
I looked at Jekyll very briefly some months ago. But I didn’t dig in enough. It’s for techies. I don’t think it will solve the user interaction issues that non-techies have.
BTW, way back in 2009 somebody used WordPress to generate flat files.
I’ve signed up for Protonmail.ch:

I think this is a great development. Instead of trying to get people to use PGP… maybe this will catch on.

Apparently 80% of all Copenhageners cycle in winter. There’s a Tumblr site called Viking Biking which shows photos of people cycling in snow.
No snow in Basel. I don’t cycle in icy road conditions. But apart from that, I also cycle in winter.
It’s December 2014 and I’m still taking snapshots.
Last year I selected 1 photo for each month. I will try the same for 2014. Here we go.
Achievement of the week. I managed to go running twice this week – in the morning before work.
It’s cold and dark. Getting outside and getting started is the challenge.
Running is fun. And overcoming my inner pig dog (only Germans have this) is even better.
