Vegan Web Developers

Post from October 24, 2022, filed under and (feed).

If you’re a vegan and a web developer, why not join us on a humble list of vegan web developers?

That’s it—I’m wondering why I never pointed to this project, so that’s all I wanted to do now. And yes—I should probably put this on a proper domain.

(Let’s not wonder here how so many intelligent and empathetic people still consume things that billions of living beings have to suffer or die for, every year. I’ve been like this, too; yet each of us may have to stop putting ourselves over other living beings first, before we fully understand how absurd and evil that is. There’s no need to exploit anyone or anything. Stop it.)
