Welcome To Distro.Tube

DistroTube.com is a site created by Derek Taylor (DT), creator of the DistroTube (DT) video channel on YouTube and Odysee (LBRY). I create videos about GNU/Linux, free software, open source software and related interests. This site was created in Emacs and written in Org Mode. I use Org Export to convert the “org” files into HTML, and I based the design on the popular “ReadTheOrg” theme from ORG-HTML-Themes.

A Brief History of Digital Gardening


A garden is a collection of evolving ideas that aren’t strictly organised by their publication date. They’re inherently exploratory – notes are linked through contextual associations. They aren’t refined or complete - notes are published as half-finished thoughts that will grow and evolve over time. They’re less rigid, less performative, and less perfect than the personal websites we’re used to seeing.
