For hyperlink.academy (also see Hyperlink.academy: a school created betwen personal sites) I’m running a “course” on personal websites.
In all honesty its not much of a course, more an excuse to have an open discussion about how people are building their websites and what they’re doing with em, all in the context of learning of course.
Last Thursday I had the first conversation with @bts which was fantastic. You can catch the recording here, though I really should’ve got Brendan to record, instead of getting the crappy stream quality on my end. There’s still some great dialogue in there though, even if the visuals leave a little to be desired.
This Thursday will be a conversation with Tom Critchlow, if you’re interested, lemme know!
What I want to learn
I have less of an explicit goal in this, I’m more just excited about my website, and want to talk to people about theirs. My hope is that by finding the similarities and differences in our experiences we can get more excited, and get others hyped to boot.
I want to learn:
- How to facillitate good discussions
- What enables and blocks people building their sites
- How people think of experimentation and learning in the context of personal websites
