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 is privacy conscious and does not allow the sale of my personal information for someone else's profit, 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 people had the freedom to express their opinions and learn from others, is now owned by a very small handful of companies that push their definition of truth and fact. It used to be comprised of small, personal sites such as this one which prevent biased censorship on an international level. Help unbeak the internet. Take the power away from big tech and host your content elsewhere.

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.
