I host this site on a virtual linux server courtesy of Amazon Web Services. It is hosted on an EC2 instance running Ubuntu Saucy Salamander. The actual webserving is handled by Apache. The Wordpress blog is also hosted locally
I started this project chiefly as a way of enhancing my own familiarity with web-programming, and particularly to use of the data API's developed by the World Bank and the Saint Louis Federal Reserve Bank. This site will eventually host a few simple VAR macro-economic and commodity price forecasting models that will be publicly accessible.
