Technology, open source, unsolicited opinions & digital sovereignty


In the proud tradition of online FAQs, this list of answers is only marginally influenced by any actual questions.

What’s this blog built atop?

I write code in spacemacs, use Jekyll for templating and static HTML generation, and host the content over S3 using s3_website.

Jekyll, git, and some custom hooks and small scripts gleaned from another blogger’s workflow, written in spacemacs. You can read all about it on this very blog.

Which Linux Distro?

Can I re(print|blog|post) an article from this blog?

Sure, just attribute it to me. If you’re reprinting something in a third-party publication, I’d like a heads-up and request for permission as well.

What qualifies you to write about this stuff?

I have a great deal of experience with a wide variety Linux distributions, and have been a part of the open source community for a long time. I’ve been involved in IT, systems engineering, and security for a while now as well.

I wouldn’t call myself an expert per se, but I try to submerge myself sufficiently in different technologies and topics to the extent that I feel competent enough to educate/explain concepts to others.

I’d love to get any additional insight others may have, so feel free to either comment on relevant posts on this blog or contact me directly with additional feedback, corrections, or general inquiries.
