A Pint and a Parma is an interconnected place for writing and publishing, powered by WriteFreely and ActivityPub.
Cos runs this service because he hopes to recapture something of the spirit of the “small web” when people self-published, information was truly distributed, and the Internet retained a sense of wonder.
The name is a dedication to the memory of a departed friend who loved catching up for a pint 🍻 and a parma 🐓 as much as he loved fiddling with internet services 🧑🏻💻.
A Pint and a Parma is home to 31 articles across 4 blogs.
