Welcome to The Hive

The Hive is my corner of the web to be myself. I like to write on a wide array of topics ranging from technology, cryptography, hacking, philophy, and just general life "things". I also post JavaScript prototypes from time to time, which you can find in my projects directory.

If you want to drop me a line, email me at the address in the footer. To keep things private, use my public key.

Indie Web

I am huge supporter of the Indie Web movement, and thus make use of a lot of the principals and features that drive it. I encourage anyone and everyone to participate, and help take back the internet from the monopolies who try to keep us subjugated.
