Hello

You can call me Pre.

This is my website. It has existed for the majority of the time the web has existed. It’s existed for more than 20 years now. That’s how old I am.

These days I’m mostly working on a flying saucer story set in VR, promoting my Wordcloud Tarot Deck, Playing music with the band, and of course the day-jobs.

Projects

Here is the things I’ve been making, mostly in order of how recently I worked on them, so the ones at the bottom are basically just archives.

Talk

You can find me on Facebook or Twitter but frankly why would you? Those places are terrible corporate curated sinkholes where freedom goes to die. I’m only there because you are there. They hide your friend’s posts from you, they hide your posts from your friends, they stick adverts in your faces, they spy on you. They offer to manipulate you for corporate and political interests in return for money.

They are horrible, and yet there exist open and free sunlit uplands with no adverts and no monitoring and no spying and simple chronological ordering giving you your own way to group or filter messages.

You should leave the corporate web and follow me on the open free fediverse.

I cross-post some of the things I post to the fediverse to the corporate social-networks, but a decreasing amount of it and only as a courtesy to those who haven’t had the power to leave yet. I know you’ll follow soon.

I’m hosting at boing.world and if we are friends, or have friends in common, then I’m happy to host you there too. Otherwise find a host that suits your interests and give me a follow from there. Maybe we’ll become friends.

You will see nothing on the Facebook/Twitter feeds that you won’t see on the Fediverse feed, and you will see more on the Fediverse feed than either of the billionaire-owned horrors.

Here’s my latest posts to the free fediverse:

“Hummm. Was quite pleased with …”

Hummm. Was quite pleased with this script last night but now it's the next day it seems I've taken half the jokes out and turned it into a humourless polemic screed.

More writing today then.

“The new #pistolwhip #vr levels…”

The new levels are proper difficult.

First couple of minutes are great though. Another great update. Expect by the end of the weekend I'll get to the second of the new levels.

“Retailers shutting down due to…”

Retailers shutting down due to the combination of and employed more staff and saw more money change hands than the whole industry.

Yet it's fishing that holds up a Brexit deal they still reckon.

Which might be crazy, since I'd like to see the entire fishing industry shut down like Debenhams presumably will now it's gone bust.

There aren't plenty of fish in the sea any more. Our waters should be a fish sanctuary with no fishing allowed at all.

“So that's it then I guess? Joe…”

So that's it then I guess? Joe Rogan's podcast with Moxie is the first one I'd have listened to if it wasn't for the fact it's only on Spotify. Just a few clips on the youtubes.

Oh well.

Good luck Joe, see you when you come back to the free web.

“Is there a browser plugin like…”

Is there a browser plugin like Ghostery, only it doesn't open stupid annoying popups to tell you when there's an American shopping holiday?

“Highest monthly close ever. A …”

Highest monthly close ever. A full 40% above the previous highest monthly close.

“New all time #bitcoin price hi…”

New all time price high on Bitstamp.

Coinbase not quit hit new highs yet though.
