Please use me as a resource December 25, 2021 on Drew DeVault's blog

I write a lot of blog posts about my ideas,1 some of which are even good ideas. Some of these ideas stick, and many readers have attempted to put them into practice, taking on challenges like starting a business in FOSS or stepping up to be leaders in their communities. It makes me proud to see the difference you’re making, and I’m honored to have inspired many of you.
