I'm a #mentalhealth professional by day, living in the #pacificnorthwest. Cautiously bisexual (in a trans- and genderqueer-affirming way), cis. #Polyamory is my jam, though I have very strong feelings about hierarchies (👎) and ethical nonmonogamy (🎉).
Interests and hobbies: #boardgames, #netrunner, #fountainpens, #journaling and #bulletjournal (#bujo), #cocktails, #cyberpunk, #cats. Probably more things I can't remember right now. I like #geocaching and am pretty leftist. Hi!
I'm poking around the fediverse, trying to find more people to follow. I'm drawn to conversations about:
💞 empathy and justice
👥 building community
💗 relationship anarchy/ethical nonmonogamy
♟️ board games
...to name a few.
Anyway, if you see me interacting with a couple of your posts in succession, hi! I'm trying to put more cool people like you in my timeline.
I've set up shop over at @EssDub. Come find me over there, y'all! <3
It didn’t take Amazon too long to find something evil to do with their purchase of Ring https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2019/06/police-offer-amazon-ring-free-exchange-access/592243/
Technically, I do believe the current tools we see popping up are better built versions of centralized platforms most people use, and that's cool.
But the reason progress is so slow is because we're still clinging to the concepts they ground into us when their were no other options available.
We need to stop building decentralized platforms in the same vein of centralized ones.
And building tools that actually help people *must* be at the center of why we're building them in the first place.

Nerd for board games, fountain pens, and craft cocktails. Big on empathy. Fascism is a loser ideology.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
