Imma make this clear: I'm not building software for developers.

I'm working to building tools for people.

You shouldn't have to know to maintain and secure a server to have your own independent identity online. You shouldn't need to know what libsodium or similar library to be secure online.

That's my objective.

Serious question for the /#DecentralizedWeb.

What kind of content do y'all want to see produced in the realm of media?

@deadsuperhero's video really inspires me to get on that boat of content creation (outside of other things) and I want to know from y'all. video.jacky.wtf/videos/watch/6

Lemme do a longer .

I'm a software developer. I also like to cook, dance (hip-hop largely, step), read, write, TV crunch and be outdoorsy. I'm a lot ;). I <3 my dog!

I like giving people tools and the notion of autonomy. Especially over data. If you have questions about me, check my faq at jacky.wtf/faq. If it's not there, let me answer and add it for others to find!

Never feel afraid to ask me anything. I'll do my best to answer - or find someone who can.

That one scene in Westworld when Ed Harris/William fights to not get in the car was lowkey emotional. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/4a9b0e8d-344)

I’m starting to understand the value behind things like IPFS and Dat more. I am always concerned about funding (which is why Dat tends to attract me more and they’re building closer to things I’m more invested in seeing). But the tooling of IPFS looks more attractive.

Time to read. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/cbbd713f-ddf)

What’s some new stuff we’re building with the open social Web? Need to cleanse my palette a bit. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/4619a4b1-8ec)

“I’m tired of company indifference dictating the developer mindset.”
A bar.

“Worse, if we still want that creativity we create things like scraping and what-not to work-around solved problems. That’s not progress, it’s a shitty hack.”
Yup.

microsoft.com/en-us/surface/de That said, the specs of it look nice. I’ll still be copping a PineTab though because I like owning things and not worrying about being spied on. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/67000b0a-a00)

twitter.com/surface/status/129 I still don’t understand why this is running Android. Outside of the fact that Microsoft still gets royalites off Android (howtogeek.com/183766/why-micro). inb4 adoption, they have the money and “mindshare” to push their agenda. Are they just going the Samsung route? (v2.jacky.wtf/post/bce9f973-4a2)

I'm so happy to have this patio where I can sit in the sun in the morning and read some Butler sci-fi. It's truly the high point of my day

Wow FediLab is very poorly designed. It's like a forced kitchen sink. It works though. But I'm sticking to tusky

Love yourself enough to demand to be treated better than being a token stereotype.

If you don't, or can't muster that yet, let me know and I'll love you enough to demand that for you. No one deserves to just be content with accepting the crumbs of human decency that oppressors throw our way. You're a person, not somee bigot's feel good lesson or stepping stone to become less of a shitbag.

if you aren't engaging in self-criticism & self-reflection, even e.g. w/telling jokes, you will reproduce the harmful structures you were trained by. There's no 'pure' core identity that makes our speech or actions good b/c of stated ideological commitments or identities &c.

It feels harder–less fun & whimsical & cool–to have to think deeply on what the consequences of what you say & do might be for people unlike you, obviously, b/c callousness is a privilege you've got used to enjoying.

We were not designed to have this many eyeballs on us. But these platforms will bend us. twitter.com/noname/status/1293 Tbh, if follow counts were disabled (or mutual only) and mutual-only replies the default, Twitter’s celebrity engine would break and lean towards more natural humane lenses so quickly.
