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.

@torwegia ohhhhmyyygooddddd

@BerlinWalrus Naw man, computers are bullshit.

@torwegia I mean, the canon is that vibranium absorbs sound so that its stronger... not reflects it

@rrrrrrrix And the good news about going matrix-only is that I can still federate out to IRC and others at will.

@michielscholten Thule is nice, but covered in logo and #brand :(

@BerlinWalrus yeah, it's still a WIP, but it's coming along

@BerlinWalrus @Torwegia it's coming from Arcology my #indieweb blog-engine built in ...

@BerlinWalrus We'll need @Torwegia to be a razorgirl.

@BerlinWalrus All I've ever wanted in my life is to be a decker :3

@huertanix Oh, yeah, it is. I haven't checked my email in like two weeks augh.

@huertanix @willbradley We could exchange Snowdenmail through the Web Of Trust, no?

How many words have been wasted on ten harmless ones that appear once in the message area when starting Emacs?

Ryan Rix is a computer infrastructure fanboy who dabbles in decentralized systems. Reach him on twitter as @rrrrrrrix, via email to or on Facebook or on Matrix as
