So I'm playing around with Scuttlebutt and Patchwork. I've even set up a pub server:

social.sacrideo.us

Specifically intended to help those who are interested in keeping up with my own social/technical network.

While I can't stand normal social media, perhaps this decentralized stuff might make it easier for me to interact. At least secure messaging is a real thing.

It's clearly early times yet, but come say hello if you feel inclined to do so.
