Hi! I’m Alexander Cobleigh, aka cblgh.

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.

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,
