You can support my work on advancing decentralized social networks at "FOSS & Crafts Studios": https://www.patreon.com/fossandcrafts
A post explaining the rename: https://www.patreon.com/posts/same-projects-53920782
It's still covering the same work I've been doing on decentralized social networks, but also is expanded a bit. It's a bit more obviously connected to the @fossandcrafts podcast, but also @mlemweb and I have various projects to advance FOSS & free culture we'd like to explore... so your support advances all of that!
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! https://www.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
If anyone want to look into a cute and well made game, look no further than "Rise of The Wool Ball"

From the Guix blog: What's In a Package? https://hpc.guix.info/blog/2021/09/whats-in-a-package/
A look into how Guix aims for reproducibility, how packages can make this easy or (in this case) difficult, and how we all stand to benefit from buildable-from-source systems and stand to lose from opaque box binary-only approaches.
