Hey I can finally announce that in September I'm going to be a Mozilla Open Web Fellow! I'll be working with Code for Science & Society, focused on weirding up the decentralized web. I love stuff like Mastodon, obviously, but I think the decentralized web can be more interesting and mind blowing than "big tech we already know, but decentralized".
@darius Congrats Darius!!!!
@darius awesome! I can't think of a better person for this fellowship 🤖❤️🤖
