Thought this needs an update.

I deleted my twitter and been active here for a while.

I'm mostly tinkering with 3D printers, raspberry Pi and electronics. Python programmer by day and sometimes by night too.

I'm into Debian and linux in general, and make videos for @gtalug.

I also like running and cycling.

I'm posting about my side projects but also retoot things I find interesting.

Also the headline graphic is to die for.

If Facebook engineers had to moderate content one day a month, to the standards they hold their content moderators to - that is to say, if Facebook engineers actually experienced the consequences of the software they've written - I wonder how many of them would still be working there in six months?
