What is elpengu?
This site is all about software freedom. Seeing how the internet is more and more centralised into a big corporate environment, I wanted to provide an alternative solution which reminds of the first day of the web.
Here we promote the following concepts:
- Software freedom, and the use of libre software such as: Linux, *BSD, Matrix, IRC, Fediverse etc.
- Decentralisation. Having all your eggs in the same basket has never been a worse idea than today.
- Minimalism and the UNIX philosophy: all programs should do one thing, do it well and in a simple manner.
- Abstinence from consumerism. The web is a powerful tool, but at the same time a weapon for destruction of our attention spans.
I host multiple open-source & privacy-friendly services, providing an alternative to popular websites. Everything is free as in freedom (no ads, no tracking). Take a look at them below!Services
I sometimes post about technology and its implications in real life, philosophy and other topics of interest. Here are some of my articles:

You can contact me via Email or Matrix. No, I don't use Discord and I don't have a Discord server, but you could join my Matrix room.
