Hi, I'm Andrew! I'm a software developer from the UK pretending to be a blue fox on the internet!
I'm a massive dork and am interested in amateur radio, electronics, engineering, programming, trains, space, science and a whole lot of other things! o3o
I work for a big Enterprise-ey company, but I like writing small, concice bits of code which are easy to be picked up and understood by others. I also care about accessibility and ethical programming (that is, using programming to make the world a better place instead of using it to make profit!)
My account is locked to act as a bot deterrent, feel free to drop me a friend request. 💙
All these years after I commissioned it (5 years!), I am super enamoured by the icon @demoweasel did for me.
Wired, 1993: Rebels with a Cause - Your Privacy. "On the cover were Eric Hughes, Tim May, John Gilmore, holding up an American flag, faces hidden behind white mask, their PGP fingerprints written on the foreheads. Gilmore even sporting an newly-founded EFF T-shirt. (from Thomas Rid, CS Monitor)"
Wired, 2019: YOU'RE IN PRIVATE MODE. To continue using a private window, sign in or subscribe. The title of the article being denied reads "It's Time to Switch to a Privacy Browser. Ad trackers are out of control".
danah boyd's EFF award acceptance speech from the other day is a tremendous call-out of tech
Fox / Hyena! 27 years of breathing experience. I try my best to be a good citizen. 💙🤗 #NoBot
