Andrés C. kandr3s 🇨🇴 Autodidact. Sharing thoughts on Free software, online privacy, Football, Rock music, Philosophy, Classic novels and documenting life.


On the Internet I go by kandr3s, but my name is Andrés Cárdenas.

I’m a 🇨🇴Colombian Autodidact interested in Free software, privacy, Football (Soccer), Rock music, Philosophy, Classic novels and documenting my life.

I’m not an active social media user, so I built this website as my personal space on the Internet. Here I post articles, social notes, likes, bookmarks, playlists, a music journal in Spanish titled 🖭Tinta en las Cintas and logs of the music, literature and cinema I consume.

I consider myself a minimalist as that’s the lifestyle I embraced growing up in a remote town in Colombia. There was never room for excess in any aspect of life and I kept it that way over the years. I’ve worked in mines, retail, warehouses, call centers, online publications and building websites.

I’m a privacy, self-hosting and free software enthusiast. When using software or online services, unless unpractical, I always go with the open source and privacy-respecting option.

I’m building a Heroes' Wall to highlight some of the people that have influenced me or whose works I admire.
