Hello Town! I suppose this is my #introduction.
My name is Merl. I am an ever-distracted generalist (trying to find more focus though). My day-labor hours have been spent as a Creative Technologist or Web/Interactive Engineer at different companies over the last several years. Prior to that I was a full-time musician.
I care a lot about gardening, food, music, art, community, radio/comms, language, sustainability... (the list could go on forever).
I am excited to meet you all!
i just love you and want you to be happy

hi folks, thank you for having me:) now for a little #introduction
i’m Kel, and i’m a part time student after 10 years away from academia. prior to this, i was a sys admin (mdm deployment and identity management) for a few tech companies. i’m now back in school for social work.
i’m also a practicing buddhist, and a musician. looking forward to spending some time in the brand-less space with you all. peace and love.
this is from earlier in the year, but i've been thinking about and expanding on this progression and wanted to share it with you all
Hello! I’m Jak, and I mostly think about the intersection between philosophy, economics, and technology. I’m working on a philosophical system to help human social organisms navigate complexity, and I’m also learning/working toward building a more simple, resilient, and efficient vision of networked data and computing.
@loppear @csepp To be honest, I've little interest in optimism or pessimism, both addictions of their own. Hope too, in large doses, can produce toxic levels of procrastination. I tend toward Kate Marvel's (climate scientist) that we need courage, more than hope. The resolve to do well without the assurance of a happy ending.
new life goal is to have a riveting hulu biopic series made about me and my scam tech company that never had a real profitable product and spent all the investor money on reforestation efforts
