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.

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

Just FYI I have not done any more work for Purism since Todd told me the decision to not moderate Librem Social was final. I've already seen some alt right personalities on there and that's not fine with me.

Not sure if you're following @wobblysaeeda or not but they're putting out some awesome shit.

I especially thought mastodon.art/@wobblysaeeda/102 was moving, inspiring, evocative, troubling.

Put Your Head Among the Heads and say "Oh Cutter of the Heads"

This was a short animation on the theme of 'block' done for a local experimental film block party.

The title is a literal translation of an Arabic idiomatic saying.

The prompt was 'block' - shown as pollution/environmental blocking away of habitat, bowel obstructions ;) , and the executioner's block in the title and subtext, opression blocking justice and freedom
