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.

Imagine if we ran fediverse software *as a game* that people played... that would give motivation for people not currently interested in the fediverse to join. Kids would play it, teenagers would play it... and now imagine if we hook it up to Tor .onion or I2P addresses, etc. This could help normalize the behavior of using those systems as much as https is normalized today. When everyone uses it, that can help protect politically at-risk groups, activists, etc as well.

I'm way too sleepy to write anything intelligent today, but I'm 3000 words behind schedule, so I guess I'm just gonna write about cake for a while. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/10/sleepy

Timely, friendly reminder for those out there who are (rightly) pissed off with #Alphabet #surveillance:
25 GB of #mail ✉️ using your own domain, with unlimited aliases; plus contacts, calendar, notes and 10 GB of file/web storage; with great desktop and mobile clients and push sync; and with no #ads or #tracking — all that costs $50 (~€43) per year with #Fastmail. That's inexpensive freedom 🗽. I just renewed my plan.

My life is a neverending series of logistical puzzles to solve. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/10/life

Missing the little chart that appears in November on my profile, I made a NaNoWriMo progress page on my site. Obviously I got carried away and embellished it with all my past attempts, too: rhiaro.co.uk/nanowrimo


Week in review: 24-30 September: Kaunas -> Vilnius, Vilnius cafe-working and touristing, day trip to Trakai: rhiaro.co.uk/2018/09/week-in-r

Look at Boston up there with London and Edinburgh! It was on the map once. In the 1300s. THOSE WERE THE DAYS.
(Days we'll be going back to after March 2019 presumably)

Posted 112 photos: Day trip to Trakai, Lithuania's number 1 tourist destination. Town is squeezed between two lakes and features castles on islands, and an absolute butt-ton of interesting anthropological history [...] rhiaro.co.uk/2018/09/photos-tr

Posted 67 photos: Walk to Vilnius TV Tower, river, forests, parks, pizza. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/09/photos-vi

Posted 56 photos: Three days of cafe-working (and eating) in Vilnius. It has been cold, but the city seems nice at night. Food options are good. Also a hostel rave. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/09/photos-vi

Posted 14 photos: Lazy last day in Kaunas. Checked out the library on Laisves Ave and wished I'd had time to spend there. Discovered I'd overbooked one night at Monk's Bunk but they gracefully gave me a refund. Food at Ridikas on the train platform, the train to Vilnius.. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/09/photos-ka
