I hung out today (virtually) with Sava and Liana, and we chatted about the potential for using GitHub Pages to "reclaim your domain." I'm working on a book right now (omg, the manuscript is due, like, Saturday) about the very topic, so I'm frustrated and amazed how hard it still is to articulate both the importance and the possibility for folks to do just that...
How to Reclaim Your Domain:
Part 1 (on the tech you'll need)
I made a couple of screencasts to demonstrate the next steps...
Part 2 (on setting up a GitHub repo and creating a GitHub Page)
Part 3 (Changing the DNS)
Part 4 (A First Look at how Jekyll works for blogging)
