~ Hi Everyone ~

I'm glad this space exists and looking forward to spending some time here. Some things about me:

in the spirit of further , some random things that preoccupy me:

- maintaining a generous sphere of personal freedom while being embedded in society in a fulfilling way
- dreams of next-gen composition tools for virtual modular synthesizers
- thinking about how to make North American cities beautiful and functional in spite of decades of car culture
- recognizing and grappling with spooky psychological antipatterns: mine and others'

Absolute king.

On July 1, 1943 Willem was executed by Nazis for bombing a Dutch public records office preventing the nazis from identifying a huge number of Dutch Jews.

His last words were "Let it be known that homosexuals are not cowards."

Eternal love and respect. 🖤🏴🗡
