About

I host, operate, and do most of the editing here on HTYP, though I welcome other contributors. I have a more substantial/general homepage on the HypertWiki and a personal/creative site at woozalia.com. These are both rabbit-holes. You're welcome

HTYP was one of about three wiki projects I started at about the same time, in 2005 (the other two being Issuepedia and our family site, The HypertWiki).

Current

  • /toot.cat: I inherited hosting & adminship on 2017-12-30

SSFCBO Ideas

SSFCBO = sustainably self-funding collective benefit organization
