Personal Info

Languages spoken: 

Formerly benjamin-agaric in IRC, I3IVIIVI on Twitter, and the identity-concealing username Benjamin Melançon here, before standardizing on mlncn (my last name without vowels or the cedilla).

Web developer with Drupal. Also a fighter for justice, liberty, and the greatest power possible for all people over our own lives-- soon. Meantime, i try to do no harm.

Agaric helps people create and use powerful web sites. As a collective of skilled workers, we collaborate with clients and free software communities to develop tools and build platforms that meet the needs of our clients and their communities.

Our founding principles include the political goal of helping all people gain the most power possible over their own lives. We apply this to our work and build online applications that our clients can easily update and expand on their own. Agaric proudly uses world-class open source free software that means freedom from lock-in and always keeps our clients in control.
