JadedCtrl is a programmer who, from time to time, develops nifty free programs, projcts, or services – I have especially liked her file hosting program ‘distribute-coin’. She’s also written several interesting articles covering various, not only technical topics, in English and Esperanto. If you like handcrafted website, the one on Cowsay and Rewarding HTML, on its own, is a pretty nice read.
Herein lie links to websites of various people and project that I have (for some reason) found interesting and worth a look, so please, do take that look; perhaps you’re going to like some of them!
Seremel is an autor of short stories in Esperanto, English and Russian. Aside of some literary tidbits painting ordinary scenes in unusual light, she’s written several love-flavoured stories with fantasy elements. Her English writing has some nice world-building pieces released into the public domain, so take a look if that strikes your fancy.
Citrine is a general-purpose, localised scripting language, allowing you to write scripts in your native language. It’s also very simple and purely object-oriented, all of which can make it very comfortable to use! If that sounds good to you, check it out; just know that it’s not yet very mature or polished, and that most languages have been machine-translated. But it welcomes translations and holds a lot of potential.
GNUnet is an ambitious project aiming to create a free, alternative network stack for building peer-to-peer applications, paving the way to a new internet, one that’ll be more respectful of our privacy. What sets it apart from other projects in my eyes is the focus on security by default, the deep care for user freedom (typical of the parent GNU project) and the apparent expertise of its authors.
There are some issues waiting to be solved before using GNUnet is likely to become practical, but it looks promising. If you’d like to help, you should know it’s written in C, but also modular, so it doesn’t have to be.
