I am a programmer in New Jersey. I have been on federated social networks since 2013, and am really into the cooperative model. I am into mathematics, anime, free/open source video games, and personality typology, and generally just like meeting new people online. Hope to strike a conversation with some friendly people here!

I never want to hear about ease of use or fragmentation holding any other OS back. Windows obviously isn't keeping it's market share on actual merrits.

"I wonder if Plato wanted every person to be a philosopher in his republic? Could he imagine that every living being could be a philosopher? Jesus’s sophia perennis, for the transformation of every being through wisdom may be closer to it, and perhaps closer to us achieving this republic that we dream of. Christ?
