Great talk, thanks for that! Question: (linux sysadmin) 

@aral Running your own VPS of course gives you a lot more control but also some more responsibility. How do you, for example, keep your VPS patched (updated)? Configuring so called 'unattended upgrades' and proper handling of failing upgrades (email notifications?) is something that is not entirely trivial to configure yet very important, especially when using the VPS as a communications hub.


Question: (linux sysadmin) 


Maybe I am already thinking too far ahead but I can imagine this being a hurdle down the line. SaaS (think S3/Netlify for example) solves this very neatly. In the spirit of small tech: we obviously don't want to use those.

Have you thought about this? Do you think this should be something that sitejs facilitates somehow?
