My personal IndieWeb site. I write about and develop software to promote user autonomy. Topics include accessibility, security, privacy, and software freedom.

About me

About this site

This is a basic IndieWeb site.

In addition to its canonical url, a “rough draft” of this website also exists on my Tildeverse page. This site’s content also appears on my Gemini capsule.

For more information about the site, its design, badges/awards, and available feeds: see the “meta” section. This site’s contents are authored by me, not generative AI.


Here’s a selection of my best articles, in featured order. To see the rest, visit my Articles page.

I edit some of these articles quite often; some are updated indefinitely. Check the “updated” timestamps.

Timestamp format: YYYY-MM-DD, as per RFC 3339 and ISO 8601. Sorted newest to oldest.

This site is part of 15 webrings. A webring is a collection of sites in a circular doubly-linked list; each website links to the next and previous site in the list.

Some of the “next” and “previous” links contain JavaScript; you need to enable it to be re-directed to the correct page. I’ve marked these links with “JS”.
