I have some INCREDIBLY exciting news. I’m going to be working full time on free software!

New episode of @librelounge out about Datashards, a project @emacsen and I have been working on for secure, collaborative, decentralized storage primitives for the web. https://librelounge.org/episodes/26-announcing-datashards.html

Mad last minute but for my NYC folk!
