Internet has become bloated, recruitment agencies filter candidates by buzz-words, tracking and
anti-tracking tools became a cat and mouse chase.
Internet used to be a lovely place where people could share their ideas in the public domain, but now they are all protected by licenses and prevents readers from copying texts even if it is for educational purposes.
Banking websites has 6-12 character password rules, right-clicks are disabled, can't use password managers to auto-fill passwords, and analytics embedded from services who primarily live by spying on people.
I am hoping to inspire young generations to take the right path by making this website, showing that you can still make a functioning and beautiful website without compromising privacy.
This website partially supports IndieWeb to help build a better internet.
This means that I stray a bit away from sending pure HTML and CSS files, these are generated on server-side to implement categories and to help in the long term goals of this website.
- All blogs contain h-entry to make it machine-readable.
- h-card is available if you want my profile card to be crawled or be mentioned in your website.
- Can filter based on categories (click on any hashtag on a blog).
- Will soon have a server-side search feature.
- Will soon have webmentions.
- Will soon have RSS feeds to read blogs without browsing my website.
The name is confusing, what does it mean?
I came up with the name Coding Otaku while searching for a name that's related to both programming and Anime. I like watching Anime just as much as I love tinkering with code.
To my surprise, No one bought "codingotaku" as a domain name, and I couldn't find anyone in social media going by that name.Otaku is a Japanese term for people with consuming interests, In modern Japanese slang, the term otaku is mostly equivalent to "geek" or "nerd", but it is now widely used as a term to refer to people who are obsessed with Anime and Japanese culture (It's not the proper use though).
