Bring Back the Pipulate.com Website

Bringing Pipulate.com Back to Life with Python and FOSS SEO Software

There are tools that are external to your body, and there are tools that are internal to your body, and the difference is in a combination of:
- feature churn
It’s a strange thing, but a big argument for not using proprietary software is that it remains external to your body. You can not incorporate it into your digital DNA and pass it on as a hereditary trait. You can with FOSS software, because licensing allows it. And if feature-churn is low, the mechanical skills of using the tools are hereditary as well, because muscle memory is a sort of a cache or lookup-table. Feature-churn breaks such lookup tables, because all the mappings change. People who learn the roads around where they grew up and then move to a new town know what I’m talking about with this mapping. FOSS software should be like the town you grew up in whose mappings remain forever useful because you carry the town around with you inside.

I want Pipulate to be handled like MikeLev.in/index.md
