"Not me!" I yell from behind my Arch Linux™ laptop filled with entirely free and open source software which respects my freedom. "Tell your M1cr0$0ft sponsors that the future is libre and it's coming"
"NOOOooooo..." he screams as his Windows Surface Pro Disintegrator™ Uploads™ him to the cloud for going against the Terms of Service* which forbids the knowledge that it is truly the year of the linux desktop

decentralized, offline-first protocols are an important prerequisite for building autonomous communities and replicating information across the solar system and beyond.

the centralized architecture of data silos and other modern networks (including fediverse) make even interplanetary communication completely infeasible. there are a lot of steps to take before that, but we need to get ahead of the curve to ensure that free software becomes the default moving forward.

Happy New Year, SDF.

During 2018 I was blessed to meet many interesting, creative, talented, and kind people through SDF, both virtually and in person. My life is richer because of this great community!

Here's looking forward to 2019, in terms of new friendships and in terms of some great new technologies in store for the SDF environment!

🎆 🎇 🎉 🎊

So it looks like Kodachi just deleted all of the poems I'd retrieved from the archive and sorted into individual files. Moving to Manjaro now. Unknown when I'll get the time or energy to pull all of the poems back out again. ...Happy New Year, I guess?

going through the dump of my old blog's poems and uploading the last good ones. Everything should be up by New Year's
