Brief intro. I am a middle-aged (boomer) hippy, farmer, musician, and fediverse developer currently associated with the Zap project while continuing my life's work in decentralised communications technologies. I was in San Francisco in the Summer of Love, and was on the internet back when it was still an obscure US government research project. Currently living on a farm in rural Australia which is no longer much of a farm due to changing climate. It's now more of a dying dirt patch. I'm generally accepting of accepting people and appreciate intelligent conversation from those with a variety of life experiences.
I've worked for large corporations and have seen greed and its associated market domination/control up close and personal. I now reject both and the entire culture that they have spawned, as I am convinced that they are toxic to humanity.
Please note that the software I use is radically different from Mastodon/Pleroma and allows a great deal of control over who to share things with and accept comments from. If you aren't already an existing friend/connection you should probably add me before replying.
