Welcome

This site is a gathering place of my thoughts and ideas. More importantly, it is a place where I attempt to consolidate and organize my online footprint for future preservation. Like many people, I have come to realize that dumping mindshare into platforms I dont have direct control over is a fools errand. At best you lose your work as companies are bought and sold, at worst your content is used in ways you would have never authorized in the first place.

My interests are scattershot for sure. Right now, most of my writing centers around rehabbing a home I bought with my wife, grappling with how the political landscape has pushed me out of the mainstream, vegan cooking, struggles with depression, and my health. Another theme that crops up a lot across my writing is being disillusioned with the Free Software Movement, while also having an inait unwillingness to use corporate platforms.

I am just an average dude with no ulterior motives. I find lots of things interesting, but one of my complaints about the spaces I roll in is constant chatter about various software tools to create, but never actually seeing anything created with it. This is my attempt to be part of the solution rather than a complainer; that roll is already more than filled.

This site contains a collection of blog posts from the many blogs I have had over the years. I have edited them so they flow better for static pages. Newer writings are done more in an essay format and are only available here. I am currently working on a new Podcast and a Physical Newsletter I send through the actual mail.
