I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

Are you a UK-based artist? Do you have a climate-related project idea? Do you want to get paid to develop it? Do you want me to have your back on the tech side? Apply for a winter residency at Watershed (where I work, starting July 1): watershed.co.uk/jobs-opportuni

Actually, "Spaghetti-O" is already plural, like "surgeons general". The correct singular is "Spaghettoo".

Redid my website, now it's got more pictures, and it's easier to find stuff: mewo2.com/

Making a new website, how do you make a website, what are the good websites?
