You want power? Run a server

Lots of people want to learn to code these days, and that’s great.

However, as a 40-year programmer, I think it would be even more useful if people learned how to run a server first.

That’s real power, because with a server you can communicate without going through Facebook’s filter.

It’s really not that hard to do, or expensive.

Run your own server. That’s power.

PS: Or use Evernote. They don’t publish a feed at all. It’s a good platform to build on, imho.
