I use Jekyll, the blog-aware static site generator, to generate the content of the site from a bunch of text files.1

I write all of the articles in Atom and publish them via Git to GitHub Pages. I write everything on my 27” 2019 Retina iMac running macOS. I use various keyboards (typically with Gateron Blue keyswitches) for all my typing.

All of the source code for the site is available on GitHub.
