I feel like a criticism of nation states that doesn't get made enough is that nationalism comes to replace community.

Reminder that SeaGL is this Friday and Saturday at Seattle Central. Free to attend.

Check out these rates! Anacortes, WA is offering public gigabit internet for under $70 a month. We have the opportunity to do the same thing here! has asked the to vote on whether or not SPU should consider it for Seattle.


Someone asked Debbie Bookchin last night how people could best help those in . She said when she visited there she asked her hosts the same question.

Their answer: work to adopt libertarian municipalism in your country.

Just saw Debbie Bookchin speak in about . Timely since I'm reading a biography of her father.

Interesting talk. Given recent events I hope the region finds a way to retain its autonomy.

Of course I'm running it via maelstrom so it only starts when I use it. YAML example here:

I co-host a meetup in Seattle for tech freelancers. We meet every other Monday from 8am-9:30. We use the โ€œlean coffeeโ€ format to rotate through discussion topics.

Given recent wework/meetup pricing shenanigans we are considering moving to an alternate directory, but sadly meetup still has dominant network power..

Anyhow itโ€™s a small but pleasant group. Stop by if youโ€™re interested.

We distribute food every Sunday at Occidental Park in Pioneer Square (next to the fireman statue). 4:30pm - we run out.. Usually 6pm or so.

All food is vegetarian. Most is vegan. We do food pickups at a few area restaurants. Some folks cook stuff and bring it.

If it's your first time, just show up.

Did a zoom screen share yesterday on Fedora / Wayland and was able to finally share a single display. Thanks to the devs that got that working!

FOSS friends who use : I'm working on an AGPLv3 reverse proxy that starts and stops containers on demand (based on requests via HTTP, "cron", SQS). It does not use .


My goal is to create a way to easily deploy and scale systems with minimal operations effort and complexity.

It's early days but I have one client who plans to put this in prod next month.

I welcome feedback. If you're interested in contributing please reach out.
