I am Jake (jbauer), a person with many interests and hobbies and not enough time for all of them. 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.
Have a look at my values and beliefs if you want to know more, my projects to see what I’m working on, or my digital garden to view my personal wiki. I also run JadeRune.net, a collection of online services for a handful of people.
I blog mostly about technology and computing. I also took part in #100DaysToOffload in 2020. Here are a few of my favourites:
- OpenBSD on the Dell XPS 13 9380
- 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?
