Guestbook

I miss the good old days of the Internet, so after seeing Manu do the same thing, I decided to create my own guestbook.

I loved a good guestbook back in the day, so figured this would be a fun little feature to add. Please do feel free to sign this guestbook using the form below.

Hello there! Love the blog Kev and miss the newsletter!
Frequently come here to check in on your design updates, those are always fun to see :)

Thanks KristΓ³fer. The newsletter still kinda exists, but it's only a rehash of my posts. I might reintroduce it at some point in the future.

Honestly, you are one of the torchbearers of the IndieWeb culture. I've been reading your blogs for 4 years if not more and it is always great to consume your content.

Confession: I tend to copy your design for my own little home on the web (sowwy :P)

Kev Quirk

Never be sorry for that. I've copied so much stuff from other sites. I genuinely don't think there's a unique site out there - we're all influenced by the things we like.

Duőan Mitrović

Hi Kev!

Your content convinced me to take my own blog more seriously. I might've given up otherwise. It's always fun reading your articles, especially given how diverse they are. Keep up with the good work!

This makes me feel like the 90s again, and I love it. It's possible that it's because I was a worry-free teenager. But I remember those years as simpler times. The internet was a wonderful place to learn and connect with others. Thanks for your help keeping that part of the internet alive.

The CSS styling of this website blows me away. It's the "Paul Allen's business card" of stylings. Look at that subtle off-white coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh, my God. It even has a collapsible menu div. I didn't even know you could set and use CSS variables like that. Impressive. Very nice.

You're far too kind. Thank you so much. ❀️

Thanks for being an inspiration. I look forward to stealing more of your ideas (with proper attribution! I'm not a complete monster!)

Imitation is the highest form of flattery and all that. πŸ˜‚

I think we all "steal" many design elements, whether it's deliberate or subconscious. I know I have, many times.

Hi!! I love your website. This design reminds me of my project for my uni portfoio lol. Keep going you inspired me to make a website as well!

In your post about digital currency, folks are not talking about digital currency as digitizing existing ones. They are talking about a currency that is digital first and physical second. Because current currencies still have to be moved around, whether we see it or not. A digital first currency has also the benefit of not requiring banks or any institutions as the currency itself would be the institution.

The closest thing to this dream so far are cryptocurrencies.

Kev Quirk

You think banks are physically moving trillions of bank notes around the globe every day? They're not. Currencies are digital first these days.

I get the comment about no bank being required, but like it or not, banks give us stability because they're regulated.
