Hello world!

Hello-WorldWelcome to my blog. It’s still a work in progress, and it’s purpose will change over time… but for now, its serves the following purposes:

  1. Exercising the “right hemisphere” of my brain, as I share my thoughts on music, technology, books, hobbies, etc….
  2. Gives me a place to rehost posts from my old blog
  3. Helps me to grow my experience with AWS and other technologies that I’m becoming familiar with. Today, I’m hosting my own WordPress instance on a LAMP server that I installed on an AWS EC2 micro instance. I’m using S3 to host the images and media. Over time, I hope to use AWS (or scripting in PHP) to
    1. write a program (or use AWS media technologies or Lambda) to convert m4a files for mp3 (it’s easier to share my music in mp3 format)
    2. change the WP-S3 plugin to use S3 infrequent storage (no need for the redundancy that S3 provides)
    3. convert the DB from MySQL to Amazon Dynamo (or another noSQL db).

So, thanks for checking out my blog and feel free to leave a comment!
