Hi! I'm Alexander Cobleigh, aka
I'm an independent researcher and currently part of the Dat Consortium and the European Secure Scuttlebutt Consortium. I am also the current editor of the Secure Scuttlebutt Consortium's Newsletter, as well as one of the main developers of Cabal, a peer-to-peer group chat, which I took the initiative on in April of 2018.
Recently, I also finished researching subjective moderation systems, which I detail in my published Master's Thesis work, TrustNet.
My current focus is on combining usability with peer-to-peer applications and ideas. The intent of that work is to create easy-to-use, sustainable infrastructure, and tools, for people and their communities.
- the open source wiki I built,
- the LocalStorage-based private budget tracker (use on yr phone),
- the music newsletter I published for 51 consecutive weeks,
- my writing, such as the article on the 12 pomodoro work day
If my projects inspire you, or is something you use, and you have disposable income:
I welcome, and rely on, your financial support.
The plot below indicates how much remains before I can cover basic living expenses (~1k USD per month).

Currently the best way to sponsor me, as Microsoft matches each pledge until October 2020.
For recurring donations, if you already use their platform.
For one-off donations.
You could also consider buying an album from my extensive Bandcamp wishlist, as music is what fuels my day-to-day (in addition to tea & bread :)
Thank you for your consideration and your time,
