Hi I'm Myk Bilokonsky and welcome to my home on the internet. This
is a work in progress. (My home in meatspace is in New York City,

Socially, you can find me on
the bird site, or
my mastodon instance. I do have a facebook account but I generally only friend folks I
know in person. If we've met feel free to find me there.

my own essays

experience from a subjective perspective, and my twitter account
is particularly active in this space!
