Github for your blog? Genius!

2009 06 26

Apparently someone is using github (one of many free, online version control systems) as a platform for their little programming blog or whatever. Freaking genius! VCS is the immediate solution to so many classes of data- related problems that I’m not sure why I didn’t think of this idea sooner. A simple, portable VCS-to-HTML translation layer running on your webhost of choice, and suddenly you have a really amazing, open, transparent and extremely performant data-driven website. This is a really good idea; I should code that up.
