Right Here — Right Now

Location: Spain — Madrid.

I’m quite happy to share some time and possibly some tea or other delicious things, do make contact if you like.


To contact me send a mail to thomas . sigurdsen at gmail, do encrypt it if you like, even though my keys are old and weak.

Who? What?

My name is Thomas and I’m the steward of browniehive.

I usually label myself as a multidisciplinary with primary focus on permaculture1, gardening, programming and free software. In many ways I’m a hacker2, and enjoy exploring crafts I don’t know how to do. I also have diabetes which I’m happy to talk about.

With that said though, labels are quite shit for describing and understanding human beings.

I am currently working part-time as a translator and living in a state of semi-homelessness while looking for more permanent housing.


The server you are currently visiting is a linode instance; they say it is located somewhere in Frankfurt. It runs NixOS and most components I have control over is free software.
