Freedom-focused hacker. I love everything about free software, and spend much time contributing to it myself. I occasionally write blog posts to help other people getting started with free software, show the issues with proprietary software, or just talk about something I find fun and interesting.
Pretty much all of my projects can be found on git.tyil.nl, though many of them are also mirrored on other code forges.
I can be reached through various means of communication, though all of them usable by completely free means. Scroll down to the Channels section for more information about that.
My public PGP key is available from my own site, or from a public key server such as pgp.mit.edu. The fingerprint is:
1660 F6A2 DFA7 5347 322A 4DC0 7A6A C285 E2D9 8827
You can also fetch my PGP key using the WebKey Protocol:
gpg --locate-key email@example.com
Email contact goes via firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to at least sign all mail you send me. Even better would be encrypted mail using my PGP key.
I do not read my mailboxes very often, so please do not expect a timely response. If you require a response as soon as possible, please find me on IRC instead.
I host my own MissKey instance to interact with the wider Fediverse.
I am active on various IRC networks, most often under the nick
tyil. All of
these are connected from the same client, so you can pick any of these if you
wish to have a real-time chat with me.
As the years have gone by, I’ve been losing faith in Matrix more and more. I still have an account, and I would be happy if it ever got good, but I personally am not counting on that to happen anymore.
If IRC is not your thing, I can be reached for personal chats on XMPP too.
