I’ve been hired at Planetary!
Yesterday was my last day at Roadtrippers, and I am very excited to announce that I’ll be working on Planetary’s iOS app full time starting next month. Secure Scuttlebutt embodies so much of what I want the internet to be, so getting to work in this space full time is a dream come true for me. The idea that the code I write will be open source contributions to a decentralized social space that is designed to empower users is such a privilege.
I know to some people Planetary are still the bad guys, and I understand that. To them I would say: Planetary are the nicest bad guys you are ever going to get. So if Big Tech-type money threatens this commons then let's work together to secure it. Not that Planetary is Big Tech or has Big Tech money, but I think that's who many are really afraid of, and rightfully so.
Planetary still has some work to do to catch up to the other clients. But once we get there I’m really excited to see how we can move the ball forward for decentralized social and for SSB. I am so thankful for this community and everyone who has made this possible for me personally. To everyone who has worked on the clients and libraries, community gardening, sent me a pub or room invite, thank you ❤️ I hope I can give something back through this.
