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:

We have room to grow, room enough for our kids to look back on us now and our idiotic cruel ignorance that few today see...listen to them.

Flash flooding warnings issued for practically the entire Phoenix metro area. In some areas, 2 inches of rain have already fallen with one more to come. At those levels you’re talking Armageddon.
