WHO AM I

Hi, I'm Dave. Known to some as the most handsome guy in the world and to others as a privacy advocate, this is my personal site.

As someone who cares about privacy and likes to choose what information I share with the world, I do not use any proprietary products or services from companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft, or Apple. Instead, I only use open source software that respects user freedom. Therefore, this site is my main presence on the internet and primary means of contact.

WHY THIS SITE

The internet is broken. What was once a decentralized and federated network where we had the freedom to express our opinions, is now primarily owned by a very small handful of companies that push their own version of truth and fact. They choose what you see and censor anything they don't agree with. They decide what you are allowed to say and ban your entire online precense when the hurt feelings police arrive. The internet used to be comprised of small personal sites such as this one, run by individual people that had the right to express their opinioins, which prevents this extreme level of censorship. This tiny site is my contribution to help fix the internet.

NETWORK

I primarily use OpenBSD whenever possible for personal laptops and servers. When not possible (cell phone, some servers, etc), I fall back to minimal GNU/Linux distributions that are not infected with systemd. These pictures show some of my current setup.
