The longer version

The internet is in a bit of a strange place right now when it comes to social networks. I used to be active on Twitter, but you can probably imagine why I left. I tried Mastodon, enjoyed it for a while, but eventually found it to be too much of an echo chamber. And while I do have accounts on other birdsite alternatives, I am not actively present on any of them.

Currently, I am somewhat active on TikTok. Yes, I know it’s got its share of problems. Yet, it still manages to be the social platform where I’m learning the most, plus it doesn’t fuel my anxiety as the tweet-like places tend to do.

I also use LinkedIn somewhat regularly, but I’m not playing its algorithmic game, so it’s very likely you won’t see my posts even if you follow me there. But hey, we won’t know until we try, eh?

Big Tech platforms come and go, which is why this blog remains my main content hub, especially for the written word. If you want to follow the content I publish here – and some other places –, I do have RSS feeds for blog posts and videos that you can subscribe to. (In case you’re wondering, Feedly is the RSS reader I currently use, and I use Raindrop for bookmarks and sharing articles I find worth reading.)

Still, RSS is read-only, so I wonder whether a newsletter that you could reply to might be a better option. Not as a substitute, but as an add-on. Either way, any additional channels or changes will be documented on this page.

It’s pretty sad that I feel like I have to defend my choices, isn’t it? Yeah, it certainly feels like there are no good choices to be made other than retreating into safe private communities. As tempting as that is, I still believe that publicly sharing knowledge and making new connections over the internet is generally a good idea, so these are the compromises I currently make.

Speaking of communities, I’m currently an active member – and volunteer – in the community on Slack. It’s a pretty friendly place, so join us if you’re interested in climate action as a tech worker. And as part of Tethix, we’re nurturing a community of Pathfinders to explore paths to better tech futures, together.

You can also email me at if you have any comments, questions, or suggestions. I’m not always good with emails, but you can improve your chances of getting a reply by introducing yourself, not trying to sell me stuff, and not expecting me to prioritize your needs and timelines.

Eventually, I might add comments on this blog, but I’m still looking for a decent solution without excessive tracking.

And if you enjoy my content and have the means to do so, you can leave me a tip on Ko-fi. No pressure.
