My corner of the web. It may indeed be trivial – but then most blogs are.
I am not a great fan of blogs. Before blogging became popular, people who wrote diaries used to do it in private and wash their hands afterwards (to misquote Heinlein). But occasionally I have found a blog which has been useful to me. Typically such blogs have been single topic or specialist sites devoted to descriptions of how the author has solved a particular problem.
This site may develop like that.
Or it may not……
(With grateful thanks to “user friendly“)
In case it is not obvious from the general content, this site is dedicated largely to articles about the usage and versatility of the computer operating system popularly known as Linux and the applications which run on it. I am a passionate fan of free software.
I also care deeply about personal privacy and anonymity when using the ‘net. I am a strong advocate of privacy enhancing technologies such as tor. Indeed I care enough to fund both my own tor node and a tails mirror.
Anyone wishing to contact me can do so by email at my admin address (which if you are a human being rather than a ‘bot, should be pretty easy to figure out). If you wish to send me private email, please use my GPG key. Note that as of 20 July 2012, I have upgraded my GPG key. The key transition statement may be found here. Alternatively, you can email me via this contact form.
And for an historical perspective on me, see slashdot.
