In 2020, I quit my job as a Silicon Valley software engineer to embark on a mission to bring the internet back to the place of joy and creativity I grew up in.
The initiatives I launched and am currently leading include:
- BobaBoard, a privacy-centric, open source, forum-like software for online communities
- Fandom Coders, a 200+ people community where expert and beginners coders in fandom meet for friendship, support and learning
- Random fun stuff, including RobinBoob (a "ship-ownership certificates" marketplace parodying the NFT craze), and FujoBoard (a reimagining of the old Yaoi paddles phenomenon for the modern fangirl)
I've also introduced many people in fandom (often members of communities underrepresented in tech) to open source and web development, and I'm actively working on related educational material.
