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.

I don’t think proprietary software is avoidable. Like people just want to corner a market, ya dig? And if you can close the whole stack even with obfuscation of WASM, what’s the point of an open browser? (v2.jacky.wtf/post/24f68a13-834)

"Distance Instagram from other social networks"

This shit is why the fediverse will thrive.

Facebook is too scared to let other social networks be mentioned along side them 😂

Going to attempt to build a system image for my Pixel running KDE Plasma Mobile in real time. Hopefully this doesn’t take too long. Keep me company over at jacky.wtf/twitch! (v2.jacky.wtf/post/d6f65dc0-d1b)

Setting up my desk to do this live stream of me installing KDE Plasma Mobile. For some reason, OBS doesn't want me to have two cameras active

I think I’m going to do it. I’m going to flash my Pixel 1 to run @KDEcommunity Plasma Mobile tonight. I might do it on stream if I can figure out how to keep a camera on my phone at the same time. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/7b33773b-f12)

"Plasma Mobile: weekly update: part 6."

This week’s update is full of applications, and library updates, Kirigami, and MauiKit offer new components and apps like VVave present new fixes.

Just had a great day at the FOSS4G/SOTM Oceania regional conference!

Started with some keynotes on diversity, and then I attended several good talks on promoting FOSS (particularly for mapping).

After lunch I attended some talks on standards (where the speakers weren't very diverse), where my father to give two talks: one on developing metadata guidance and another on DGGS. For the latter I got to present on implementation details, like you know I like to do!

I think I’m just paranoid but I’m actually worried about the Web. Like it’s the conduit of knowledge for people and as much as it’s heralded for bringing us so much; there’s work being done to close and lock it off. (v2.jacky.wtf/post/d43cf5a6-f02)

I'm excited to announce that the #Zinc #Coop has released #PlasticBullet's source code under the #LicenseZero #ProsperityLicense.

The next release of the app will include the license text, as well as bring improved support for modern devices and iOS 13.

#ZincCoop believes customers have the right to exercise direct control of software they've purchased; and that sustainable economic models for user-facing software can include broadly permissive licensing.

I want to use mdbook to write some documentation for a (private) #Rust project. How should I structure the various directories locally?

#WorkLog - I just published one of the products my #Coop acquired earlier this year under the #LicenseZero #Prosperity license - social.coop/web/statuses/10312

I'm a bit terrified, tbh. The amount of criticism that comes from the open source community is always high if you do anything finance-related. But fuck it. We gotta grow as a community, and ethical, sustainable software isn't going to fund itself.

Peertube is another great idea ruined by the myopia and hostile resistance to learning white men seem to carry with them at all times in the tech space to anyone not white and male.

I’ll just wait for something better to come along or build it myself when I have the time.

It’s actually comical how bad Bay Area traffic is right now… It was already almost this bad at 2:00. Apple Maps won’t even show the slower alternative routes (92 is usually the fastest for me). 😖
