It’s almost 2017 and I feel like this is a new world.
We are launching a new business and tech will be one of our business lines (along with farm and sustainability).
I love free libre open source software (FLOSS) and have done some activism in this area, I also use it daily and I wanted to record the very, very many explorations I make in this space.
They do a great job publishing quality information and I learn a lot from them. I want to do the same. They are independent, self-publishers and this is why I love the internet.
I feel compelled, probably unwisely, to comment on the recent US general election. I am not a citizen and can’t vote, but I predicted a Trump victory, and was surprised by how close the presidential election was and also the wide sweep of wins in nearly every political office i.e. governorships, both chambers etc.
I imagine we will see 8 years of Trump and possibly a long term change in the political system and possibly a GOP ascendancy.
This will have an effect on our lives and our businesses and institutions. I’ll be doing research and unpacking this as the year unfolds.
On a technical level, I have become extremely interested in the Rails inspired Elixir / Phoenix web application framework.
I am working a Phoenix website and an Elixir / Phoenix utility library now. For development purposes, Elixir and Phoenix are my main focus. But I have ideas integrating WordPress / Drupal into some of these projects.
Another area I want to develop is a consultancy business around project management and development of new products. Also big data analysis and systems integration.
I am open to contracts now, contact me at [email protected]
