For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.

Hello (again) Fosstodon!
I’ve been away a little while but I’ve returned! Thought I’d do a little intro again.
I’m Wyatt, I have Aspergers and many float between many hobbies and interests. Lately I’ve been into cassettes, I love vintage audio.
Studied audio engineering school.
Big into open source, privacy and self hosting.
Very happy to be back!
A win for #opensource in Canada.
