John M is a Linux fan in Lowell, MA.
I work at at a company writing software. I fool around with Free and Open Source software for fun & profit.
I was big into Last.fm and you can still see some of what I listen to there. I can also be found using github and recently sourcehut as well as bitbucket (historically). I don't care for most popular social media sites. If I have an account on one or the other it's probably either old and unused or was created just for tinkering.
Links to things I like, use, or otherwise feel is worth sharing. Things I'd like to see get more popular.
I wanted to keep a bit of a record of some books I read in 2020. This isn't a complete list. This only covers books I completed and only those that were a first read. I didn't keep track over the course of the year, I just looked over what's on the shelf and I clearly remember completing it.
This isn't a brag list or anything, but I am happy with the fact that I read much more long-form books this year than the past few.
