    1. People want to own their data and their namespace but they don’t want to run servers to do it. What’s the solution? Separate the elements. Treat your personal server as a BDS (Big Dumb Server), there to answer API calls and file requests.  Move the admin interfaces up towards the client, and maintain them centrally the way apps are maintained. Eventually, move the presentation layer towards the client too, allowing readers power over how they consume the data on your server.
      • Database:
        • provided by host
        • general purpose
        • accessible by http or https API
      • Database administration:
        • Native app or Web interface making privileged API calls.
        • GUI file browser for web server folders and files.
      • Presentation Layer
        • Pull pages (or other data) from multiple databases.
        • Customizable: the data you want, in the way you want to display it or otherwise use it.

      There is no ownership while we rent.

      We either own or increase our freedom of movement in and out of rental environments...or both.
