From Marginálie
Jump to: navigation, search

Christopher Rozruch[1] is the pseudonym of Marginálie developer, Rob Ward. He is currently working on Marginálie alongside a novel, the first in a series called Call Them Soldiers, which he first conceived of in 2007-8 when he first saw the effects of Facebook in the community around him as he was working at a further education college for kids with "special needs" and behavioural problems in the English West Midlands. Currently, he is living in Prague in the Czech Republic[2] and may be contacted at His website,[3] is not a high priority but if his output here and on Marginálie is not disinhibited and lo-fi enough for you, you could take a squint at what happens when a guy with ADHD really lets it all hang out.

He is currently involved in writing and building Marginálie, recording videos and podcasts, and writing the introduction to Call Them Soldiers. He also ought to continue to set up (and use) the Plemora instance he has set up, if only to write about the experience.

Should you follow me on social media as krozruch on my / our very own Plural Polis, Prague, marginalie_eu on Twitter, which I am using seldom, on Mastodon, or indeed if you are on on Keybase where you will find me as @krozruch, please feel free to prompt me to work on some of the items below.

On Bandcamp, I am krozruch.
