We are at the dawn of the Age of Interaction. We want to be informed, but we want to interact with the information. We want our actions to carry impact, and we want inter...
If you read our last blog post about our new open source community, VH: Playground, you would know that it is a community that was previously just for developers. You would've also learned that VH: Playground is perfect for those who don't have time to fully commit to volunteering and allows volunteers to devote any time they do have to work on projects and help us save the animals. This community has now evolved and we are looking for content writers to join too!
Stephan is the team leader for Team Carrot! This team works on projects like 5 Minutes 5 Vegans, Daily Nooch and many more. Stephan is also one of our most senior team leads, recently celebrating one year with us. He is one awesome developer who never loses sight of our ultimate goal - saving the animals. We think you’ll like him just as much as us, keep reading to learn all about him!
Since we launched in 2019 we scrapped together a logo and a website in haste to get things moving. We've made some minor changes here and there but ultimately we felt that our development and design time could be spent better focusing on projects and organizations that needed our attention right then and there.
VH: Playground is our open source community where you can contribute to animal rights projects. We acknowledge that developers are busy people and volunteering on our core team can be a major commitment that developers don’t always have time for. This community allows you to pop in and out as you please and allows you to contribute on your own time.
Vegan Hacktivists (VH) wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for our supports, patrons, and readers just like you! We are so grateful for every person that engages with our projects and content. We want to give you the chance to learn more about us and the people that dedicate their time to keeping VH operating. Who better to start with than the founder himself, David Van Beveren!
The internet is a vast collection of websites and pages, it’s difficult not to get lost in all the information thrown your way. In the vegan community alone there are various Instagram feeds, subreddits, recipe blogs, and so much more. It’s impossible to keep up with the latest news and posts unless you’re connected to the internet 24/7. For this very reason, we created your new homepage: Daily Nooch!
Living with anyone can be challenging, no matter how much we like the people we live with. There are countless stories about people regretting living even with their best friends. Now imagine living with the people you don't share views with. In that case, you have one more issue on top of the usual concerns. Some people are quite vocal about their non-veganism, and if you have to interact with them, negative feelings may arise on both fronts. While that is certainly difficult, there are ways to make such cases a bit less hard on you.
We've just started up a new team dedicated to collecting and analyzing data on both Vegan Hacktivists as an organization and the projects that we make. For the past 2 years we've been gathering random statistics on each project but haven't done much further. 🍓
