So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.

How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: patreon.com/cwebber

Wish me luck. More updates soon.

privacy is your local scope where you perform your local reasoning

maybe people who don't think privacy is important are okay with programming by only mutating global variables

Hi! You may most likely know me as co-editor of ActivityPub, the decentralized social network message which is more-than-likely how you're actually receiving this message! w3.org/TR/activitypub/

Other things you may want to know:

- I'm a user freedom activist (free software, free culture)
- I post a lot of leftie politics stuff
- Expect lots of tech posts around lisp, decentralized network stuff, obscure-ish programming history

Sabrina by Nick Drnaso was terrifying and timely graphic novel. Its power comes from its understated visuals contrasted with its uncomfortably deep subject matter. In many ways it's the inversion of the rubber-necking of modern "true crime" story obsessions. What's on the other side?

Reading Sabrina by Nick Drnaso. The simplicity of the artwork makes it kind of haunting...

i've defended rms' pedantry
i believe in free software
i believe copyleft is essential
i believe AGPL3 is the best license

i disagree with those who say "software freedom isn't important these days" or that ease of use is more important

but every time RMS makes the news he undermines the FSF and the free software movement 🤦‍♂️

i just e-mailed them to discontinue my recurring donation and told them why

gonna increase my donation to software freedom conservancy instead

"don't worry today I'll just relax"

"Hm, I wonder how hard it is to switch that mutable datashards code over to elliptic curves. Probably not too hard..."

I am bad at relax

Gold toilets are a shit display of wealth.

Ok, so that's three promise dungeon crawl stone soup characters dead in one morning. Plus brunch!

I think that qualifies as some downtime. What's up next, though?

Today I'm finally going to get some of that downtime in. Don't ask me to do things today, please!

The best way to pressure the FSF to sever ties with RMS is to cancel your membership/recurring donations and let the board know why.

RMS is viewed as the main driver of donations and support for the FSF, an asset as opposed to a liability. 💸 talks

Friam call went well.

Now it's time to relax and play dungeon crawl stone soup for a while???

I need to decompress

Programming language style guides help reveal a lot about how experienced users use the language,and how designers intended the language to be used.

So much for that promise I made to a friend that I'd get any amount of downtime whatsoever once I got back from this trip ;P (Yeah yeah, nobody's fault but my own, I guess.)

Time for me to prep for my presentation to Friam today about OcapPub
