In 2015, inspired by Program Think, FiveYellowMice found a way to release their desire to express – creating this blog. At first the plan was to talk about their personal projects, topics on censorship, and other miscellaneous ideas that requires long pieces text to explain. But as FiveYellowMice realized their ignorance, the number of the former 2 types of articles decreased. Now this blog is predominantly filled by the 3rd type of articles, with occasional preachments on free software and comments on literature works [1]. You can view all the tags on this blog to overview the type of contents it has at the moment.
