Hello!

My name is Filipe, you might know me as ps or psenough. I'm a strong supporter of free culture and open source, sharing most of the things i do on youtube and github. I'm a self-taught artist / geek / hacker / hack of the digital age with a degree in informatics engineering. Also a interactive media artist, a musician, a software developer, a demoscener, a netlabel owner, a writer, a gamer and a livestream host. I also help my girlfriend with her Books&Beers Portuguese youtube channel.

Yes, i do a lot of things in different areas! Both a blessing and a curse.

In 2016 i realized my full-time job at Artica as a senior software developer / project manager / company firefighter was not letting me focus on the things that really interest me. And since life is too short to spend it stressing about things you don't enjoy i decided to reduce my hours to a small consultancy role that just keeps me financially afloat and allows me to do what i want, regardless if it comes with a paycheck or not.

And what i really love doing is music, demos, writing, playing videogames, creating videogames, content for youtube, livestream event hosting, interactive art, performance tools, etc. I also want to do these things as free and open as possible. Not spending time thinking about business plans, monetization schemes, dealing with clients with bad ideas, all those useless meetings, bureaucracies, submission forms, etc. Just doing whatever cool stuff i feel like doing next.

My evil plans for world domination right now include:
- livestream semi-regular Mystery Demoscene Theater 9000
- run Enough Records (prep new releases, regular new episodes of Enough Records Radio Show, setup a 24/7 online radio?)
- setup regular schedule for deep dream generator livestreams
- do more videos for youtube (try to reach 1000 subs)
- co-organizing Audiência Zero creative residency in December 2018
- become pro Vainglory esports player (get a team to participate in VGL, improve my draft simulator)
- random creative writing (finish my portfolio 1997-2017 book?)
- random music (release the ps vs OKAM colab tracks, new album?)
- random line drawing (try to get an exhibit somewhere? coloring book?)
- prepare a new liveshow / performance to tour with occasionaly

If you find value in any of these things that i do for free, please consider joining my patreon. In return you'll get access to the semi-regular reports where you can help me figure out what to focus on next. And depending on your contribution you will also get some personalized swag or credits. Your patronage will mostly help cover basic living costs, purchase new equipment, allow me to consider trips to random events and fund the non-profit organizations i support (EDRi, EFF, archive.org, WFMU, ANSOL, D3, etc).
