#introductions my old one was stale and needed an update.
i am Erin.
i am a woman, who loves women. i am trans. i am white. i am young, and a student. i have severe OCD, anxiety, and depression, and a shitton of self-worth issues. i am usually anxious.
i use the surname Moon online. i program software, do maths, and design electrical systems. i am the head of the Rustodon project (https://github.com/rustodon/rustodon). i do ML research for $dayjob.
i listen to and play music. i am trained in piano, but love synths. jazz and funk are my shit, as well as an embarrassing amount of shitty EDM.
i do not generally play video games. when i do, it's usually a lot like work. for relaxation, i read: fiction, comics, nonfiction.
i am strongly left-leaning to the point of anarchism/anarchocommunism. i try to only build systems that do not harm other humans, now or reasonably in potentia.

only effective against people who aren't expecting a real protocol RFC-style doc with structured explanations.
i can't decide whether it's just intentional chaff, or if it reflects the underlying process.
