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.
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.
- My Virtual Reality Sci-Fi Story
- My Tentacle Monster Cartoons
- Buy my word-cloud tarot deck. It’s a super-easy deck to use. I do a reading every Monday.
- I’m making an album about my bookshelf
- My Band: Handsome Jack’s Showband
- My Blog filled with musings
- The songs I have recorded
- The books I have written
- Posts about photographs
- The Bitcoin Tarot Podcast ran every week for a year. (retired)
- The Transcendence Institute contains my thoughts about self-programming and mind-expansion (retired)
- Archived version of vPre mk 1 (retired)
- The Commons Hostage (retired)
- The icomic press (retired)
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:
Team lesser-evil's bombs are so much better than the other team's bombs, don't you think?
Paid 45 quid in import taxes today. Not actually sure if it would have been any different before #brexit but I'm calling it a brexit-tax anyway.
Where do Labour want to base these nukes once Scotland leaves the UK?
Does the port which will get them want them?
I've heard it argued that an independent Scotland should skuttle those subs and dispose of the nukes safely rather than hand them over to a government with the kind of needless foreign-adventures record of the English government.
Not sure I disagree. If I was Scotland and found myself in possession of Iraq's nukes I definitely wouldn't hand them over. Is it really better to give them to the English?
Juice-Media's "Honest Government Ad" on the Facebook/News-Media kerfuffle.
Seems about right.
You know these "vaccine passports" that the government is still pretending they won't do, right?
A lot of people will be sad when they realize they won't get one until 12 weeks after their first jab because the government decided everyone could wait for their second dose.
Don't book that holiday too early folks!
#brexit making it impossible to ship books in from the USA? Seems like it is according to Cory Doctorow.
Not Cory's fault of course, nor the bookshop. The UK is to blame for raising sanctions against itself in a fit of pointless xenophobia.
Surprisingly, the path-out-of-lockdown plan looks about right. I suspect the schedule will need to slip for some of those later stages but for once Boris isn't obviously stupid and wrong.
Here's my tarot-reading account wondering what some random numbers think of it all:
A list of the last few things I’ve enjoyed reading/watching or sometimes bookmarked to read later. You can subscribe to the RSS feed here or follow the little robot on the fediverse that toots them out as I bookmark them.
