Hi, I'm Gwendolyn Bell. I go by gb, Gwen & Gwendolyn. I live in San Francisco, California.

It's August 2017 and I'm living my ideal life, even though and perhaps because, it's very much a one day at a time sitch. I meet new people constantly and when asked talk at length about Secure Scuttlebutt. I run this site with Node.js on Arch Linux local and remote on a hand-tweaked Metalsmith instance.
