I’ve only just realised that I forgot to do a proper when I first joined this instance, so here goes!
I’m Tom! I am originally from Japan, and come from a visual arts and performance background. I’m currently teaching as a high school teacher in Aotearoa, NZ.

Lately I have found a lot of inspiration from people involved in communities such as this one, and have been working on small web projects in my spare time. Thank you for having me!

It sucks that a name as strong as "Hacker News" is controlled by and overrun by a perverse group of people who have little to no understanding of hacker ethics

Turned 24 today and am finally feeling like I have an idea of what I want for myself lol

Putting together a little video archive of old and rare Jung documentaries

I've never been so happy to be in Frankfurt Airport. The US are cool, but Europe is just kilometres ahead.

Yes, kilometres, not miles. Because we use sensible measurement units.

Remember that technology is a tool. Use it to help yourself.

Re. the recent block of Iranian and Ukrainian Github users - while platforms like Github are very useful, let us not put all of our eggs into one basket (especially when they are proprietary). It’s made me realise that I personally rely too much on these monolithic services, and am looking to use more decentralised (or better yet offline + local) systems ^^
