New blog post: Installing Ghost the hard way

I get angry about a trend in server hosting and software development and go on a petty crusade to rectify one particular instance of it. Also, I ramble about a blog... on a blog.

New episode about LIbre Lounge covering a different approach for how to mitigate spam, abuse, etc on the federated social web (and why other currently considered approaches aren't a sufficient foundation), moving towards "networks of consent"
