I’m a crowdfunded independent researcher and engineer
My work currently focuses on combining usability with peer-to-peer applications and ideas. The intent of that work is to create easy-to-use, sustainable infrastructure and tools for people and their communities.
Being an independent researcher means I rely on independent sources of funding. If you like or use my work, you can join others and help fund more.
A selection of projects created over the span of the last few years.
- Cabal (ongoing) a protocol for local-first peer-to-peer realtime group communication
- Cerca (2022): a golang-based forum suite
- Lieu (2021): a community-focused search engine
- plain (2021): a static-site generator operating on markdown using plaintext files
- TrustNet (2020), a subjective moderation system
- Monotome (2018): an open source wiki
When not creating new projects and solutions, I contribute to existing ones.
Being a long-time community member of Secure Scuttlebutt I've been lucky to work directly on the project in a few different capacities, including contributing to the golang ssb implementation, pitching in to the harwdware-based hosting platform PeachCloud, among a few others.
Whenever possible, I try to help pull together people by co-hosting meetups and conferences in the areas I find myself in.
