I'm into decentralized networks, open source hardware, modular design, distributed manufacturing, appropriate technology and solarpunk.
I spend most of my time liberating data from diabetes devices like insulin pumps and blood glucose meters, writing open-source software for tidepool.org.
I would like to spend more time growing food and building hardware to support that, and I hope to find inspiration here in the Merveilles.town community.

The people trying to pretty-up the assassination of Soleimani, by claiming that he was planning "imminent" attacks against the US or that he was responsible for the deaths of "hundreds" of Americans are playing pretty fast and loose with the meaning of words.
after reading the US/world news, unsolicited advice
You're not powerless. Go and do that kind thing you thought idly about doing. Make someone's day. Take action. Use your words, or your time, or your resources, or your own hands to make something expressive, or encouraging, or to soothe. Express affection for someone. Make a tiny piece of what you hope the world will become.
Build a little place where people help each other and invite someone inside. Build the good as quickly as the bad.
