I just switched from my Hugo-based webmention storing method (that triggered a site rebuild for every webmention) to Horst Gutmanns’s webmentiond. There are still a few things to improve, but I will try to submit more pull requests, like support for Telegram as a notification service and a few other issues.

Like of: 20th Anniversary

Congratulations! It is exciting to see that some people run websites that are (almost) as old as I am. In 2000 I was just one year old. What will the Internet look like in another 20 years?
