Thought this needs an update.
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.
I will blog about it at some point, I promise.

I like Scott Galloway.
The article on Yogababble Index-- a measurement of the levels of corporate BS in mission statement, and how that compares to stock performance.
This is essential example of his writing -- https://www.profgalloway.com/yogababble
I got reminded of this article from reading his latest newsletter https://www.profgalloway.com/casperhaps, which is also really good.
Also #mozilla has an alternative to google password -- Lockwise.

Goodbye downtown T&T. The supermarket is now on a race to find a new downtown location as the Cherry St. store closes at the end of January. But finding a space in Toronto proves to be challenging.

Or there's just no way and I need to implement this in CSS...
"Most narratives about connectivity -- often pitched by Big Tech -- use slogans like: “Connecting the next billion”, “Bringing access worldwide”, “Connecting the unconnected”, and so on. Those projects are mostly one-size-fits-all. The basic difference to community networks’ approach is that we work within communities’ realities, instead of delivering top-down, ready-made solutions."
