First post on the .01-rc version of this new blogging app I'm working on. I'm calling it MmEE Blog (Multimedia Everywhere for Everyone). Right now it's a Django app, and the idea is that anyone can just set up Django, make a few adjustments to their settings, and have their own little YouTube, Soundcloud, or Wordpress (but actually way better in a lot of ways that I'll detail in a future post). Eventually, I want it to be stored in a blockchain for true censorship resistance, but that's down the road -- not viable without users.
Just checking to see if everything falls into place where it should.
TODOs: add podcast object, set up RESTful endpoints and RSS feeds, make video encoding more painless, add some videos, pay for server, set up magic "like" button (oh yes, I have BIG PLANS FOR THE LIKE BUTTON I'm gonna next-level that shit. You'll never see corporate bullshit "like" buttons the same again after you see what I have in mind) and many more!
OK, let's add an author and picture. We'll get to videos and categories later to make sure updates can be made since sometimes that's a bit different from an initial save.
Hitting the save button, fingers crossed. Wish me luck!
