Engineer working for Axiom.co. Previously I worked on Ubuntu Phone and doing multimedia/TV, almost all consumer electronics.
An Open Source advocate and Ubuntu member. Was a co-founder for Inkscape and now serve on its board.
I think that one mistake I made with my Twitter account was making it all technical, expect this to have more politics and other stuff.
I can't recommend #KeyValues enough. Over 70 engineering teams transparently profiled for users to filter down based on shared values such as "Ideal for Parents" and "Good for Junior Devs" along with "culture queries" to ask during your interviews (https://www.keyvalues.com/culture-queries) (which I used almost exclusively).
Worth a bookmark!
#introduction Hi everyone! I live in Maine, USA. I have worked on software for a long time and currently run a cyber security consulting firm called Kindly Ops. I have a soft spot for federated / distributed systems and open source. I am interested in group cognition and mental health, and anxiously await when AI turns criminal.
Steering the boat at Kindly Ops. I care about mental health, meaningful work, and bending tech to support humans.
