I’ve been toying with the idea of a building a modern office around 8 and 16 bit microcomputers from the 1980s and early 90s. This is an idea that I dig up every few months and play with for a few hours before discarding it because it’s impractical and expensive. This is a description of my current version of this idea, and how it would work in practice.
It’s January First, 2018. Another year is behind us, and it left us with a lot of problems to solve, and a lot of work to do. This is my summation of the chief problems facing us in the new year, and a road-map for the work I can do, we can do, to solve these problems, or at least mitigate them going forward.
The web is broken. We’ve talked about this before (net noot, gopher). Today, I am here to talk about some potential solutions. Specifically I want to talk about how we can leverage some brand new technologies to build a network that operates independently from the Internet and supplements it, mitigating the ways the web is bad for users.
I’m moving! We’re still working out the exact details on when and where, but it’s pretty certain that it’s going to happen sometime in 2018! This is exciting! But it’s also pretty scary. Over the last few days I’ve talked through a lot of our plans for the future over on Mastodon and here I’d like to summarize the key points and takeaways from that discussion.
