2 title: "Publishing My Technical Notes"
3 ---
4
5 I've contributed to many sources of online documentation, but I've also built up
6 about 300 pages of useful notes. I want to share more. I don't want to create
7 yet another site and needlessly fracture documentation sources,
8 so there are a lot of existing sites and sources I am going to be offloading to
9 (emacs wiki comes to mind).
10
11 But I also have a vision of a site for material which doesn't fit well
12 in existing sources, about any free software, and has some
13 opionionatedness / style that official documentation does not generally
14 afford. One very common and annoying practice of people who do good
15 writing on technical topics is to use a blog or site which doesn't
16 invite collaboration and improvement by others. So... I've started
17 [ofswiki.org](https://ofswiki.org).

19 It's really easy to setup a basic Mediawiki instance. Of course, I had to geek
20 out on it. That process became the [first
21 page](https://ofswiki.org/wiki/Mediawiki_Setup_Guide).
