The #1 priority when getting ready to do anything tech is a starting-point. You need to get back to where you were. This is surprisingly more difficult than it may sound. There is where you are putting files in your local system, and there are usernames and passwords on your Google and Github accounts for example. It’s important to use standard conventions (even if they’re personal ones) and it’s important to keep notes (if even just to document your conventions).

I’m starting to wonder whether whatsametafor.io is really the best place for this sort of content. I can sort it out however I like over time. It’s actually not TOO committal.

I’ve got a bit ol’ mission in life now, I guess. Well, it always starts with helping my child, wife and family. But after that, it’s teaching the world Linux, Python, vim & git in a particular way that helps make you obsolescence-proof and disruption resistant… a new kind of literacy.

WHO WILL MY WRITING APPEAL TO?

THOSE WITH A TECH-TOOLS FOCUS

THOSE WITH A DATA OR SEO-FOCUS
