"There has been a time when the Internet was mainly a project for the military, a time in which it was a project for academics, then came a time the Internet was a project for corporations. Now is the time we make the Internet a project for citizens and communities."

I got zero responses last time I hit up the Fediverse offering paid creative work, but I'm not giving up!

Some #Owncast features being worked on require iconography. And while we could use an icon library or something like Fiverr it'd be nice to work with an illustrator on the Fediverse who focuses on icons to have something that is custom.

This is paid work, so please boost and tell your friends.

Feel free to message me on the fediverse or email me: gabek@real-ity.com

"The last twenty years of the internet have demonstrated the vast and unchecked power that comes with owning and controlling the platforms, the ability to structure and profit from every interaction.

Sometimes I need to learn how to do a thing, so I search online for a tutorial. I’m so pleased when I can find a text-based tutorial. You know: words on a web page with helpful photos or diagrams. Instead of yet another time-sucking video.

Does anybody remember the first reporter to use a telephone? Was that person called a “telephone-assisted reporter?” I like to think of my contribution not as a computer-assisted reporting, but as the application of scientific method.

Google: literally pays $15B to be the default search engine

Some folks: it’s not that bad, you can change it to a different search engine
