My name is Jake though I usually go by “jbauer” online.
I’m a hobbyist of many hobbies. I love simple and sustainable technologies, tea, writing, gardening, and more. I’m a big fan of low-tech or analog solutions to life’s problems. I also have many opinions about things; some strong, some not, and most are fluid.
Have a look at my values and beliefs if you want to know more, or my projects to see what I’m working on.
I blog mostly about technology and computing. I also took part in #100DaysToOffload in 2020. Here are a few of my favourites:
- Free Software is an Abject Failure
- Why IRC is Still Good in $CURRENT_YEAR
- Why Email is the Best Discussion Platform
- Choosing a Self-Hosted Git Service
- Paying for Software
- The Joys of Old Tech
- A Month-and-a-Half of Self-Hosted Email
- Are TODO Applications a Waste of Time?
- Why I Hate The Term “Modern”
