I have been thinking for awhile that I should start posting some general musings on scientific visualization, renewable energy, and the application of #tech4good.
So far, however, I have been stymied by the myriad of different workflows. It seems like everyone has something to say, and there are a zillion tools. Should I use Wordpress? a Medium account? something else?

We’ll see how it goes, but for now has taken only a morning to configure and it looks to be as powerful as I really need for such a simple project. It feels very nice to be back at the commandline instead of the WordPress console (yeah, I’m sure I could use a wordpress commandline interface, but can’t really be bothered to learn that just yet!)tags:
