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.

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 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.

i just realized i have a roll of novelty toilet paper i won on amazon giveaways that has fuckface von cheetodick's face on each square and i can't think of a more appropriate time to wipe my ass with him as much as possible

shitting on the presidents face during this whole mess is gonna be so satisfying no matter how john wayne the paper is

"mom can we buy a sound mixer?"

"no we have sound mixer at home"

sound mixer at home:

The fact that food can fall into my beard and I not notice it until I go into the bathroom makes me frustrated. (

Electron applications are the worst

Case in point: Microsoft Teams

When going to the Teams web site on a Linux machine: Everything works. I can do screen sharing.

When using their Electron application. Most of the things works. Screen sharing is disabled.

Why does Electron even exist?

How do I prevent Google from _actually_ not crawling Web content? Like just `fail2ban`-ing any of their agents and whole IP blocks? (

I like the idea of Netflix Party a lot and I’ve low-key wondered how to abstract it to different sites. Definitely requires a wee-bit of centralization though. (

So I’m watching Inuyasha and I tried starting like homegirl who came through the portal. That stance makes me implicitly poke my butt out which confirms how fake some of these stances be, lol. (

Our car insurance is due to be renewed in April. This is what my Apple News feed looks like right now.

Apple protects your privacy my ass.


Looking at doing a big write-up / review of #NextCloud 18. If you're interested in the platform, what parts of it would you like to see reviewed?

Currently I'm torn between doing a feature-by-feature overview, and getting really into the meat-and-potatoes of how I migrated all of my different kinds of data into it.

Not going to lie, this trend of white folks _finally_ feeling bad about businesses closing down because it “finally hits home” when PoC everywhere have been suffered with this for decades is annoying and empty lip-service. (

Can y’all name some blogs / people y’all follow for developments in the open source (read: not corporate, community-centric/driven) space? Kinda like OMG! Ubuntu. (

I' now view venture-funded vs. bootstrapped as just as important a distinction as proprietary vs FOSS.

VCs invest in companies that they think will either 1) fail or 2) as 10× as big. No one can grow 10× by organically growing their current user base with a good product—they have to change *something*. And those changes frequently harm/abuse current users.

So, I'm suspicious of #gitlab, #wire, and #keybase#foss software can't make up for perverse growth incentives.

Pass it on!
