The @CRTCeng has yet again failed in its duty to present viable, affordable communications alternatives for Canadians and demonstrated that it is a commercially-manipulated entity and not the authority it is mandated to be. Canadian government serves the oligarchs, not Canadians. https://twitter.com/iphoneincanada/status/1382835268823109636
This is part of why I'm against GitHub-as-a-resume. Visibility is a privilege, and abuse/silence about abuse makes it unsafe. https://twitter.com/sarahmei/status/1381829744950341633
I love that our official hiring policy is
- Experience is more important than education
- Talent & curiosity over impressive companies & schools
- Emotional intelligence is as important as technical competence
- Ensure every interview is a good experience, even if we don’t hire
So I have an announcement. I sent an email to my work saying that I wanted to be able to focus on my work on taking advancing the federated social web to the next level. Read: better security / abuse resistance, richer interactions, virtual worlds.
How will I be funded to do this? I don't know. I do know that the state of the political world scares me enough that I feel I have to do this. If you want to support me: https://www.patreon.com/cwebber
Wish me luck. More updates soon.

Just a general reminder that big cities like Tokyo and Taipei and Mexico City exist, they keep growing, yet without the extreme housing affordability problems that we have in Toronto or Vancouver.
It’s important to remember that we don’t have to keep people out, and we shouldn’t
