Im atyh, and this is my landing page.
Im a lifelong learner with a passion for liberty, simplicity, creativity, and thinking before I speak. I currently live off grid in the Pacific Northwestern U.S. with my best friend, some chickens, and two Australian Shepherds. I like tinkering with technology, old thinkpads, open source operating systems like OpenBSD and 9Front, and experimenting with ways of making my life, and the internet, more decentralized and free.
On the mainstream internet, you can find me on Flote.
On the Fediverse you can find me on my Pleroma instance.
On XMPP: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or by email at a AT atyh DOT cc.

I used to blog here, but the mainstream web has become kinda lame, as I am sure you are aware. It has become a space filled with sites created by bots, with pop-ups everywhere, and code-bases 100 times the size of the first moonlander computer. As well, there are now too many megacorporations, intelligence agencies, and surviellance advertisers making things not as fun as they used to be. Because of this, I have opted to move all of my blogging activity to the Gemini and Gopher protocols, which are fun, personal, filled with interesting people, and feel more like the early days of the internet.
My Gemini capsule: gemini://atyh.cc
My gopher hole: gopher://atyh.cc
If you do not yet have a browser yet to access Gemini and Gopher, I recommend Lagrange.
Thanks for stopping by, and hope to hear from you soon.
