About this Gemini/Gopher/WWW site

Credits, Copyright, and Privacy

Online here since May 16, 2022

Last updated on June 21, 2024

This site is accessible from the World Wide Web, Gopher, and Gemini, and is hosted at smol.pub.

Everything is kept deliberately simple and minimalist. Both Gopher and Gemini are mainly plain text-based media.

Please note that only the "articles" (blog) section of the site is available through Gopher. Additionally, the attached images are not displayed on Gopher.

Privacy (updated)

Beginning March 22, 2023, the WWW version of this site collects a small set of user data for simple statistical purposes. This is done without the use of JavaScript and cookies and thus no personally identifiable information (PII) can be collected in any way. The only information I can know from this is your location (only the country and the first-order subnational division if available); your browser type and operating system; and the default language setting for your browser. I do not have ways to know which page(s) you have visited, how you got there, or whether you are a repeat visitor, as it has no capability for user tracking. This data is processed by NLNet Foundation's GoatCounter using its servers located within the European Union. Gemini and Gopher users are not automatically counted in this manner.

There are no cookies, advertising, trackers, or bells and whistles. No personal data is ever collected here. If you like what you see here, please let me know by writing to hello@willowashmaple.xyz (I strongly encourage the habit of encrypting emails; my PGP public key is found at https://keys.openpgp.org) as that's the only way I would know you've been here!

Another way to show your support is to subscribe to my newsletter at Substack! (Substack's privacy policy is found at https://substack.com/privacy)

Land acknowledgments

Willow wishes to acknowledge this land, which has for thousands of years been the traditional home of the Atfalati (Tualatin Kalapuya) nation. Today, this place is still the home to many indigenous people from across this continent, including those of the modern-day Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.
