Today I finally spent some time setting up a personal website (if you’re looking for a good template, I recommend Academic for Hugo - it was really easy to setup).

Why am I doing this? Because I’m on Twitter and the word is that PhD students are supposed to do it.

In all seriousness, I should have done it before but somehow I kept finding good excuses not to.

Going back to Academic, I’m writing this with standard Markdown, so for example I could highlight code:

nc towel.blinkenlights.nl 23

But what’s more interesting is to be able to:

$$(a \sqcup b) \sqcup c = a \sqcup (b \sqcup c)$$

The Writing content section in the documentation of Academic has more useful tips!

I’ve had a different website hosted on GitHub Pages for quite some time, but never gave it any use. History tends to repeat itself, but let’s hope this time is different!
