Back off man, I know HTML

Hi there. I'm Charlie.

I build websites and try to make the web a better place.

I've got principles oozing out of my eyeballs.

  • Putting people before code.
  • Replacing Capitalism with something kinder.
  • Choosing simple solutions before technological masturbation.
  • Building robust sites before jumping at fragile frameworks.
  • Using tech for the greater good.
  • Telling Facebook to fuck off.

Bureaucracy is a function of capitalism. Bureaucracy is people responding to a world that would deny them housing and food if they did not have a job. Therefore, make yourself indispensable and make things run slow.
