I’m writing this piece1 at home. My home has a stable fiber connection to a neighborhood point and that point is connected to the wider internet.
I make use of several ‘free’2 services:
- github: hosts my code (and triggers)
- netlify: builds my hugo site and publishes it
And several services I pay for:
- I pay for a domain name that redirects the easily readable name notes.rmhogervorst.nl to the ip adress where the data lives.
- internet service to my home
Everyone in the whole wide world can connect to the website and read it3.
