The answer is, 101010

I ❤️ FOSS and GNU/Linux

I ❤️ cats

I also ❤️ anime/mangas

The philosophy of my life is:

"Act only according to that maxim whereby you can, at the same time, will that it should become a universal law."

"Wo Unrecht zu Recht wird […]"

„Für den Triumph des Bösen reicht es, wenn die Guten nichts tun!“

Im Übrigen möchte ich anmerken, dass die AFD keine Alternative ist, sondern eine Schande und eine Katastrophe.

The Club de TeleMatique was founded back in 1980 by European civil servants based in Luxemburg to find cheap and easy ways to keep in touch with their home country using computer and 300 bds modem. It has evolved since :-)
Sadly the club ceased to be in January 2024.

You probably heard about me because I am the founder of the Twisted python networking engine open source project. But I’m also the author and maintainer of several other smaller projects, a writer and public speaker about software and the things software affects (i.e.: everything), and a productivity nerd due to my ADHD. I also post a lot about politics; I’d personally prefer to be apolitical but unfortunately the global rising tide of revanchist fascism is kind of dangerous to ignore.

I’m a writer, but don’t expect deep, personal shit. I’m a sysadmin who doesn’t like nerds, they’re every bit as willing to be the most vicious and petty of bullies as the people they claim they’re so very different from.

But as individuals, they’re all right.

I’m a tech founder and recovering SysAdmin. I helped found DevOps and grew up in open source. These days I am convalescing from a decade of physical and mental neglect while running Puppet.

I sometimes write about startups, founders, and other topics I like.

I am an angel investor, mostly in areas of expertise (infrastructure and dev tools) and interest (local first software and power tools).

I am generally default-accept on first conversations.
