Hey there! I'm Amethyst, and I love the Internet. I try to build things that make cyberspace more inclusive and more fun. Welcome to my web page!
The Internet—and the World Wide Web we surf using it—is an incredibly powerful tool that can be used for creativity, community, and education. Unfortunately, the modern Web has become an unweildy beast that prioritizes profit, surveillance, and more profit. Paywalls, algorithms, and non-stop ads get in the way of connection and self-expression.
My site—and many others like it—are a response to this commercialization of our World Wide Web. We build our home pages to express ourselves. We share knowledge with one another. We work together to build a better web.
Interested? I'll be writing a full manifesto soon, but you can check out manifestos written by other members of the Yesterweb.
