Hej! My name is Johan. I’m a Swedish eco-friendly minimalist philosopher, {Gentoo,Alpine} Linux user, {Neovim,keyboard} cultist. On my website you will mostly find content related to ethical software, plaintext and minimalism.

I advocate ethical software based on open source software, as well as things like the UNIX-philosophy, the KISS-principle and the “worse is better” concept. I consider them all to be inspiring and healthy approaches to software as well as a life itself.

My journey with Linux based operating systems started back in late 2006 when a friend gave me this original CD with Ubuntu 6.06 from Canonical. I have since then been involved with support, documentation, administration and translations for projects like Ubuntu and Arch Linux. My contributions for Ubuntu resulted in me becoming an Ubuntu member back in 2009.

I have since then moved to Gentoo Linux on my desktop computer and Alpine Linux on my SoC server computer.

My life outside my computer is fairly anti-technology and ‘disconnected’. I really don’t own any other technology than the basic things like my computers, my TV and my phone. I try to live a minimalist, healthy and sustainable life. And as a strong believer of the concept “less is more” and “worse is better”, I rather enjoy when I’m missing out on things in life.

My website

This website is running on sustainable energy via GleSYS and the carbon footprint is better than 99% of web pages tested on Website Carbon Calculator. It’s created using the static site-generator Jekyll and my favoruite text editor Neovim.

My website is free from cookies, JavaScripts, trackers and any analytics. I have literally no way of knowing who’s visiting my website, how often or how many you are. My mom could be my only visitor for all I know.

This is my currently 9 year old workstation computer that’s still going strong!
