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:

Wish me luck. More updates soon.

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!

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

May confirmed as warmest on record, #CO2 levels hit new high despite COVID economic slowdown

I guess it's only been a bit over a week since I switched from just-thinking-mode to actually coding in the Spritely Goblins captp branch. Things are progressing maybe faster than I was giving myself credit.

New podcast episode is up, and it's the 1st part of an interview with Paul Davis, founder and lead developer of Ardour, free/libre digital audio workstation.

Topics: the outcome of the long rewrite, project financials, the GTK exodus, usability testing, and more.

Edited transcript of the 1st part of the interview is available here:

2nd part is currently scheduled for the next week.

if you think that cap-talk thread of me learning how captp works is an incoherent pile of nonsense, it's a good thing you haven't seen my notes-to-self in my org-mode file
