Hello there!

My passion is to enable Free, Secure, and Safe communications and connections (mostly) between people. To cut the story short, here's a short portfolio on what I'm working on:

I'm a developer of  GNUnet, a distributed network and a GNU project.
Since late 2016 I'm working on a new  documentation for GNUnet, one of the many goals for it is to lower the access to understanding development, configuration and usage of every part og GNUnet.
This is work which will take years of writing (I'm not doing this full time) and optimization. My approach is to get a thorough understanding of every part of GNUnet, ask questions, get people who know nothing about the project interpret sentences and adjust if they make no sense even with context, and so on. The whole lot of documenting a giant project task. I love it, others hate it. You can support me here or on other platforms to show your support for this book writing. The more I can optimize the official books, the less likely the chance will be that you will ever have to buy "GNUnet for beginners", "GNUnet 101", "How to learn GNUnet in 23 days", etc books in the future.
To some extent I am involved in packaging (GNU Guix, Gentoo, helping out other Operating Systems with corrections and adjustments, ...).
A fair share of my knowledge lies in System Integration, so I'm working on the build system of GNUnet.
I'm the maintainer of gnURL/libgnurl, a cURL (micro)fork GNUnet as well as Taler require.

With the so far unrelated, not advertised (or even usable) plant and infotropique OS/core build within the infotropique project, I'm designing a framework to build Operating Systems as well as an reference implementation of the Operating System ("infotropique OS/core"), both with GNUnet integration in every part of their structure.

Another project I am contributing regularly to is GNU Guix. My current work in Guix includes: long-term work on Torbrowser package compiled from source, Beam (Erlang, Elixir) integration, GNUnet FS intergration (package distribution and more), VIM package integration, and more. Most of these projects start out in infotropique / plant and get submitted back to Guix as collaborative efforts.


I will finish off this section with a quote from the GNUnet preface chapter, a motivation I share:

GNUnet is not merely a technical project, but also a political mission: like the GNU project as a whole, we are writing software to achieve political goals with a focus on the human right of informational self-determination. Putting users in control of their computing has been the core driver of the GNU project. With GNUnet we are focusing on informational self-determination for collaborative computing and communication over networks.
The Internet is shaped as much by code and protocols as by its associated political processes (IETF, ICANN, IEEE, etc.), and its flaws are similarly not limited to the protocol design. Thus, technical excellence by itself will not suffice to create a better network. We also need to build a community that is wise, humble and has a sense of humor to achieve our goal to create a technical foundation for a society we would like to live in.

Occasionally I write about my work on my web log,  n0.is. Other work ends up on different servers, including my own as well as infotropique's git and other projects and groups I'm involved in.

The work I do takes a lot of time and energy. Mostly time, as many of my projects are either open-ended or taking a very long time to finish.
Financial support through donations is more rare than it should be in Free Software, so if you support me I will feel happy - even (and especially!) about 1 USD donations. What matters is that you express your support. As the work you are supporting here is Free, Libre Software, I will (and can) not offer additional work here. However, I'm in the process of rewriting my websites, soon enough this text will be changes to point you to my freelancer portfolio and (limited) work you can hire me for.

For those who care, for those who can afford to express their support with financial tokens, and for those who can't do it financially but express their support through their actions and correspondences:

Thank you so very much for supporting me.
