Dokku is a small project put together in a few lines of Bash script, to set up a git-push based PaaS a la Heroku. It relies on Docker to do a lot of the heavy lifting, but it's quite an interesting little project, because it's almost exactly like a project I had all planned out, except someone else has already built it and it works.
To date, I've primarily kept this blog closely related to technology-related things I've done, that aren't tied to my day job. The problem with that, is that I haven't had much to write about in that area for a while, and my site is looking fairly abandoned. So, I think, moving forward, this space is going to be less about what code I'm writing or linux desktops I'm playing with, and more about just anything at all that interests me. I've planned a few things I want to write about, so let's see if I'll actually start writing more now.

First up, here's the various moving parts that make the magic happen: jilcrow, Dropbox, Amazon S3, s3cmd, incron, and Disqus.
