Computer :(

I'm Ryan Rix and I am: an intolerable Emacs nerd; a privacy activist; computer infrastructure wonk; public infrastructure wonk-wannabe; learning elixir; a blue smoke summoner; optimistic; empathetic; on sabbatical; living in Seattle.

After a little over five crazy years as an engineer at Uber, I'm on a sabbatical, traveling and dusting off side-projects and habits that I've neglected.

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 an SRE and Privacy Engineer, 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.
