The initiator and administrator of this site. I'm a Silicon Valley-based entrepreneur and software developer inspired by things such as this:

J. P. Barlow: "Were you really thinking about coming up with a network that couldn't be decapitated by a nuclear attack?" Paul Baran, inventor of packet switching: "No. I was trying to come up with a network that didn't have a head."

It's 2012, and with Facebook, Google, Apple and others so central to our lives, one could think the internet was always run by big guys, and everybody else just a mere "consumer" of whatever they decide they want to give us.

What's wrong with having people in control of their own destiny? Let's do it!
