Computer :(

I'm Ryan Rix, computer infrastructure wonk, public infrastructure wonk-wannabe, engineer at Uber, community engineer and breaker of hardware living in the gray bay area.

I build decentralized infrastructure in my free time. I build stupid Emacs libraries and applications. I take public transit. I computer :(. Some may say that I open source, too. I buy stupid domains and use them for bad jokes. My dirty secret is that all of my other jokes are based on old Liam Lynch videos.

In past lives, I've been a storer of stories hackerspace board member, javascript nerd and 3D printer botmaster. I am still some of these things.

I post various post types: long-form articles, photos, Check-ins, music I like, things I've read, Twitter-style notes, replies to posts and tweets, things I like, and things I've reposted or retweeted. I'm going to be adding more and more post types as I integrate them in to Arcology, my self-sufficient media platform.
