I wrote a small thing, a thing with a hopeful message.
"The Web Endures"
@feoh @staticsafe Kind in terms of topic matter or software? Topic-wise, originally mostly game modding, these days a mix of indie game dev, tiny bit of modding, some other misc geeky projects & an eclectic articles section. It's run democratically & collectively owned by a core of voting members. :)
Techwise, we use Simple Machines, which is a bit cranky but does the job and we're so short on staff that I'm covering the tech role which is not ideal.

The Internet (and by extension, the Web) is a technology of peace that was literally built for war. It is designed to survive the most devastating cataclysms nature and humanity has to offer. Whatever may happen to one of our "tubes", we have the whole "series" of them on the backup. And if not... Well, we'll just build us some more.
As long as people of the Net stay devited to the Net, we can survive anything.
@staticsafe Shit. A typo. *devoted of course.
Mastodon really needs an edit button. May be with an edit history or a simple notice "edited", of course, but still.
I see a lot more "independent" non ad funded web projects similar to 1980s hacker ethos in German, Dutch and French and also on subjects like amateur radio and electronics and sites that have existed since 1990s but are still being maintained.
