This episode features discussions of cities in New York that aren’t New York City, succeeding in university and it turns out there are people who love candy corn. No. Really! Our guest
Tierney Coren is part of the Node.js Evangelism Work Group, a web developer, designer, writer and student.
The glorious reputation of
Utica. Tierney teaches us that the origin point of the
grid system in Salt Lake is the Mormon Temple. Chris has been using
Here.com to replace Google Maps. Tierney & Paul have issues using
Duck Duck Go for search. However, Paul does love the !bangs. Chris defends DDG, but shares an option given to him on the
Cupcake.io community, Startpage.com. Tierney is doing an accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s program at
SUNY Poly. We previously did a show with a professor of information design,
part 1 & part 2. Let’s talk about our dark future with
, 1984 and Brave New World . Fahrenheit 451 More books? How about
, Snow Crash , Ready Player One & Wuthering Heights . The Prince Tierney thinks previous guest
Arturo could be the protagonist from Snow Crash. Paul & guest review the
films. Twilight Saga Tierney’s instructor is obsessed with
TiddlyWiki, so he’s learned a lot about it.
Let’s Encrypt is in beta. Tierney teaches Chris about
SuperCard Suite wants to be your HyperCard replacement. Tierney was using
ghost for his site. He tried Jekyll and Hexo. He settled on Metalsmith, a static site generator. Paul says the Montreal Sauce & Film Frown sites are also created with a static site generator,
PieCrust. The setup is documented on his blog, A Podcaster is Me. Chris mentions that he’s going to take a stab at joining the
IndieWebCamp movement with a new site using Known. He was inspired by Jeena.net and our chat with Jen Montes, part 1, part 2. A really great way to connect with
Webmentions is to use brid.gy.
