Got news today that my favorite website is going to be basically closing soon. I’ve made a lot of friends on there… and I think if we care enough we’ll stay in touch, but things are definitely going to change. Closed platforms are bad!!

Hi! I’m Joe. I like to write computer programs, and I also do that at work. I’m a development lead at an email company, and I help run a literary journal called failbetter. In the past, I managed the digitization unit at a university library.

I care deeply about open access, leftist politics, sustainability, and veganism. I read a lot β€” mostly sci-fi. I’m a hobbyist photographer, and often share my photos under open licenses.

It’s nice to meet you!

I enjoyed the streak while it lasted, but alas, there was no way I was going to catch this one.

Back at the old haunt for the weekend

New mission: listen to every single Super Eurobeat compilation

Do you ever read a book that you really, really don't like, and you know that you really, really don't like it from really early on in the book, but you still feel like you have to finish it anyway? I should maybe just let myself put books down more easily.
