After TextDrive’s disorderly death and the ensuing mess I’ve been thinking about the following question:
Given that one has something worthwhile to say,1 what is the best way to assure the longevity of a personal2 website published on the internet?
It is obvious that we should use standard formats such as plain text and HTML, free and open source software such as SSH and SFTP and Git, and, ideally, though I’m no luddite, open source hardware (the one closest to this description I can think of is a Raspberry Pi).
Digital rights management (DRM) has no place in open web standards.
