Proprietary "social" services like Facebook and Twitter are effectively silos for your most intimate data, selling it to the highest bidder.  They also have substantial influence in modern society, which they also sell to anyone who is willing to pay for access.  This has lead to complete cooption of discourse in society, transforming the open web a series of walled gardens that act as battlefields of harassment and vitriol, all for the sake of advertising dollars.

I'm working to fight back against this dystopia by contributing heavily to user-respecting self hosted alternatives such as Pleroma, as well as contributing to other projects in the "fediverse" ecosystems and providing independent reviews of software and protocol implementations from the perspective of practical security and privacy.  This independence is in part possible because of your support -- because of it, I answer only to the community and never to any project or company with an agenda.

We also need more help to win this fight and bring the open web back to what it was meant to be.  To that end, I also frequently stream videos showing how to approach software development and fault remediation from a practical standpoint, with the hope that others will be inspired to come join us in taking back the open web.

Contribute to the cause
$5 or more per month

Every $5 goes toward the development of ethical, user-respecting software.

Instance management
$10 or more per month

I will set up and manage a Pleroma instance for you on the infrastructure of your own choice.  You are in control, but I personally help you with the basic technical aspects of getting your community up and running, as well as security upgrades and so on.

Custom Pleroma module
$25 or more per month

Get a custom Pleroma module whenever you need it, such as a custom filter module (MRF).  Limited to one custom module per month.  Only valid for tasks which can be done as custom modules.

Live Stream
$50 or more per month

I will do a live stream about anything you want.  Custom modules or patches coded as you watch, or perhaps we can try to solve a Pleroma issue that gives you trouble.  Also includes a free custom module each month.

One hour of my time
$100 or more per month

Roughly one hour of my time per month, for personalized consulting or more complicated development tasks.  This can be used for video conferencing or development or whatever, and it can be split across multiple sessions.  Unused time does not roll over to subsequent months.  Includes basic development (a custom module) or a public live stream of said development if wanted.

10 hours of my time
$700 or more per month only 5 left

Roughly ten hours of my time per month, for personalized consulting or more complicated development tasks.  This can be used for video conferencing or development or whatever, and it can be split across multiple sessions.  Unused time does not roll over to subsequent months.  Includes basic development of a custom module each month or a public live stream of said development if wanted.

20 hours of my time
$1,200 or more per month only 2 left

Roughly twenty (20) hours of my time per month, for personalized consulting or more complicated development tasks.  This can be used for video conferencing or development or whatever, and it can be split across multiple sessions.  Up to five (5) hours may roll over to the next month, but expire thereafter.  Includes basic development of a custom module each month or a public live stream of said development if wanted.
