I started this site in 2018 to collect all my content in one place. The title “Cortically Magnified” is a play on “cortical magnification” - a concept in visual neuroscience.
- The site is made with the Hugo static website generator, using a customized theme derived from the Pickles theme.
- I am working on supporting IndieWeb - an alternative approach to social networking based on open protocols.
- As of January 2021, this site supports IndieAuth authentication and service discovery. Content can be updated from micropub clients via a serverless application.
- The site can receive micromention via webmention.io.
I wrote an in-depth tutorial to document the process that I am using to build this site.
