Small Tools


A collection of various software tools that I mostly put together for myself, but in the spirit of Small Tech

In the words of Aral Balkan, Small Tech,

  • Is built by humans for humans
  • Is not for profit
  • Is built by individuals and organisations without equity capital
  • Is not sponsored by Big Tech/surveillance capitalists
  • Is private by default
  • Is peer-to-peer
  • Is copyleft
  • Favours small over big, simple over complex, and modular over monolithic
  • Respects human rights, effort, and experience
  • Is human scale

I’m not sure of anything I build for myself quite reaches those lofty goals, but one has to start somewhere…

Proactive application of technology to business

My interests include technology, personal knowledge management, social change
