Welcome to Richard Fergie’s personal wiki.
Why a Wiki?
I bought this domain for personal branding reasons. Not that I thought someone else was going to buy it but because if someone is looking for me online then I’d quite like to be the person they find. Of course owning the domain does me no good at all unless there is something there. So what was I going to do?
- A blog is the traditional option. Most of the blogs I enjoy reading are actually used to impart information; I think a wiki is a far better format for that. I don’t want to write about what I’ve done each week or each month. If I wrote a blog most of the posts would be “Hey Guys, sorry I haven’t blogged for a while”; a wiki does not have this expectation. If you want updates on what I’m doing then follow me on Twitter
- I am trying to teach myself Haskell. Haskell has blogging packages but they all seemed to require a bit of extra work. I came across Gitit which seemed simple enough to start using straight away with the option of looking at the source when my understanding improved.
