Today's screencast, only 9 minutes long, delivers the punchline.  permalink
A picture named helloMyNameIsDave.jpgThis is how you create a website with the world outline.  permalink
If you're a regular reader of this site, you know that I've been going on and on about how people were thinking about DNS in too small a way. That you could put markers inside documents and turn everything inside out. permalink
Well, today's show doesn't make a big deal about it, but look at how simple it is to create a new site.  permalink
1. Enter a headline. permalink
2. Choose a command from a menu. permalink
3. Enter a domain name. permalink
4. Click OK. permalink
5. Save. permalink
That's it. permalink
How do you make it so simple? By hacking at the complexity. Looking for steps you can remove. Then factor some more. Think a bit. And remove more steps.  permalink
Even if you don't plan to use this software, watch this screencast. You'll see something new in software. That doesn't happen every day! :-) permalink
BTW, this is the site I created in the tutorial. Leave a comment if it's hot where you are today. permalink
