This year we have been reading a lot about web/computing. It's really inspiring to see the variety of initiatives going in different directions. For the end of the year, it's time to share some of them 🙂

Once you remove the multi-tenant requirement, you remove a world of complexity.

In a single-tenant system like the Small Web (, instead of designing a system that can work for 1-100,000 (or 1M, or 10M, or more) people, you’re designing a system for one person and one person alone.

Folks creating ethical alternatives: this is our competitive advantage.

If you’re making multi-tenant systems, you’re playing Big Tech’s game in their own house (and the house always wins).

"Walka o przestrzeń cyfrową to walka o naszą wolność, poczucie bezpieczeństwa oraz demokrację. Co nam pozostanie z walki przeciwko zmianom klimatycznym, jeśli nie możemy czuć się bezpiecznie w przestrzeni cyfrowej, która jest coraz bardziej istotną częścią naszego życia, a nasza praca nie jest odpowiednio płatna oraz chroniona?"

When I was a kid, i dreamt of:

- space travel: now owned by billionaire dickeads + the military;

- robots: now owned by Boston Dynamics, Google + the military;

- computers: now owned by Google + the military;

It took me a while to figure that my kid's dream was mostly dictated by imperialist, expansionist, extractivist and militarist propaganda.

Hope generations will dream of soil, funghi, insects, nutrients, species and their beautiful interlocked complexity. so much cooler than computers!
