Running Techrights in 2023

Desktop in 2022



Summary: We've evolved a lot this year; in 2022 I left my job at Sirius 'Open Source' (turned out they had stolen money from me and from others) and as a result we've had a lot more capacity to expand and grow in reach

Just over a year ago I moved to another space in order to get my activism/reporting done. The photograph above is from the end of March in 2022 (compare to 2021), so a lot has changed (for the better) since then. Yesterday I made a lot of significant changes, including the addition of 3 large speakers I've has since the early 1990s (they all still work; the same is true for my radio/alarm/clock) and today, after Easter, we resume as normal. We have much better tools, custom-made programs, to help us keep on top of news and to run all the services 24/7. A lot of the screens shown above are used for monitoring and communication.

"We have much better tools, custom-made programs, to help us keep on top of news and to run all the services 24/7."Aside from that, yesterday we moved the Gemini server, which is basically a Raspberry Pi that doubles up as a Web proxy and various other things*. It used to be on top of a shelf, but now it's in the living room, connected over Ethernet to a fibre-optic router, installed here just over 2 months ago. We continue to make improvements to the site, to the capsule, to IRC, IPFS and so on. We push as many of these changes as possible/sensible to Git for transparency's sake (and sharing). ____ * This month we've served over 120,000 Gemini pages in 10 days and about 30,000 Gemini pages as HTML (over our own proxy). Gemini is strategic to us. We hope it is the future.
