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.

The idea that the internet should enjoy minimal government oversight precisely because it was a technology that enabled open and free speech for everyone has been turned on its head. #indieweb islandinthenet.com/sunday-pape

Take a look at github.com/Stormlighttech. There's lots of new updates, and grab the latest version of OpenCAD while you're at it for the gamers out there who are looking for a good system to help with dispatch.

If it seems quiet on this front, don't worry. We've been busy on the backend making things better for the community, so stay tuned.

Support of the open source ecosystem is always a balance between support freedom and having open source things run on closed source OSs. It's possible.

If it seems like we've left the building, don't worry. We're still here. We've just gotten caught up in a massive wave of bugs and things that need fixing, so we've been working hard. Have gotten some new people, so having to bring them up to speed.

A life lesson: When you are a step parent of a child on the autism spectrum, for the sake of your self, your partner and the child, having the time required to take stock, debrief and process your emotions should be regarded as sacrosanct and must be preserved at any cost.

Put my sim in my Lumia 930 today and almost lasted the day before switching back to my Pixel XL.

Man I miss the days of Windows Phone 8.0 and especially 8.1. Despite its limitations, I've never used a phone OS with such personality, originality and passion in it before or since. It was such a joy to use even if it had bugger all apps.
