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: https://www.patreon.com/cwebber
Wish me luck. More updates soon.
@Cdespinosa I actually can't watch Princess Bride now
because I watched it and heard lines casually tossed off like 'where I come from, there are penalties if a woman lies' and I'm... what??? I thought this was a fun fantasy romp!!!
A lot of the things and people I admired when I was younger are really problematic to me now. Songs, movies, books, heroes. Now I can see them as sexist and racist and perpetuating patriarchy and basically cruel. This is not because I have become a better person; or was stupid and cruel then; it is because society has improved, and us with it. Somewhat. 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.
I wanted to make a statement
