My Internet Manifesto

I believe, sincerely, in the following:

  • The purpose of the internet is to convey information from one person to another via technology.
  • The purpose of the internet is not to make money.
  • Information is not owned by any one entity, company, or person, and should never be treated as such.
  • Artists, writers, inventors, and others deserve to be paid for their work.
  • Hoarding wealth, informational or monetary, is an unethical act.
  • Even 'pointless', purposeful information has value.
  • Every person has inherent value.
  • Every person has art to create and share.

My goal in this site and other sites is to:

  • Help to educate and facilitate the open transfer of information through a free and small internet.
  • Create alternatives to large internet conglomerations when it comes to access and enjoyment of the internet.
  • Respect myself and other artists/internet developers/communicators/inventors by respecting our work and who has created it.
  • Respect the privacy of others and myself.
  • Shut down bigotry of any kind when it is in my sphere of influence.
  • Share my art and promote the art of others.
  • Respect everyone who respects others. 1

In order to reach those goals, I promise to:

  • Never put advertisements on this site.
    • All recommendations will be made at my own discretion.
    • Any money made from recommendations will be disclosed upfront with affiliate notices.
  • Ban, block, and otherwise shut down hateful voices, including but not limited to:
    • Transphobia
    • Homophobia
    • Misogyny
    • Racism of all types
    • Discrimination on basis of religion or heritage (antisemitism, Islamophobia, Traveller/Romani predjudices, etc)
    • Classism
  • Cite sources for the images and references I use.
  • Respect the way others present themselves online (referring to others via their online aliases, self-determined pronouns, and other forms of self-identification).
  • Be as accessible as I know how to be (with the understanding I am always learning).
  • Continue to learn and grow as both a person, artist, and web dev.
  • Make art.
  • Encourage the art of others.

1 - I have no interest in any justification of tolerating bigotry. I do not believe in the paradox of tolerance; rather I believe that tolerance is a social contract. If someone is intolerant and bigoted, they have broken that contract and I have no obligation to tolerate them.
