title: "What's Your Open Source Bucket List?"
date: 9999-01-01 12:00:00

I'm not ashamed to admit that I don't usually contribute to open source as a way of giving back to the community for everything it has given me. Don't get me wrong, it's a great side effect, but the reason that I do it is because _it makes me feel good_.
That's it.
A long time ago, I jotted down a bucket list of sorts containing all of the open source projects I would love to make my mark on.

This is a **Good Thing&trade;**.
I've worked in SaaS for far too long, so as much as I can understand the value these tools bring to user experience design, marketing, conversions, and other gag-worthy buzzwords, I fucking hate how seedy the underbelly of the "World Wide Web" has become. At the risk of devolving into a rant about user privacy, the right to anonymity, and the utter garbage fire the online advertising industry has become, I'll just say this: I've never seen the more invasive tools used for anything more substantial than ~~vanity~~ making everyone think deep thoughts during weekly all hands meetings.

Look, I get it. Knowing how many potential customers you have coming in the door, how many are actually buying, and how those numbers change as you run different marketing (which is *not* the same thing as advertising) and product experiments is super valuable to the growth of the business. But collecting things like personally identifiable information and running retargeting campaigns (which is basically just the digital equivalent of aggressive mall kiosk vendors who follow you around for half a mile because you accidentally made eye contact as you walked by) is just gross.

That said, this website is most assuredly *not* a business. It is a blog; and a mediocre one at that. While I would be happy to know how many tens of people stumble upon it from time to time, I don't *need* to know it. In fact, I'm probably better off *not* knowing it. If I'm being perfectly honest, it's none of my damn business.
Look, I get it.
So, in the vein of the aforementioned posts strewn about _The Smol Web&trade;_, **I Do Not Track You**. I don't have to, and I don't care to. If you get any value out of what I have chosen to put out into the world, then I would love to hear from you (and possibly recommend a psych evaluation to account for your poor taste in internet content), but if you'd rather float by unseen, well then that's great too. I hope you enjoy your stay.
