Have you ever had a need to prove who you are online? Well this is something I've been mulling over for some time but when I got an invite for keybase.io I just had to write about it! https://goo.gl/b0zops See what you can do to assure your online identity. #keybase #onlineidentity #pgp #gpg
The Internet was designed, or at least implemented, to be anonymous. Though tracking can be used to associate an IP to a person, in general, if someone is connected there is really no way to assure…

I had an thought provoking conversation this morning if the US is or quickly becoming a cashless society. What do you think?

When I went to college at Utah Valley University (UVU), I would often stop on my hustle between classes to watch a pendulum clock in the science building. It amazed me that this thing just kept going, swing from side to side, occasionally knocking over…

#wwdc today got me thinking, "I've seen this before". Hello #convergence https://goo.gl/qd9kqy
If I remember correctly, back in 2012 Canonical started showcasing an idea they were working on, baking a full Ubuntu desktop environment into custom Android rom. The idea was that a user with a fl…

For the past 20 years I've had several email address, most of which were michael@somedomain.com. Most of that time I paid to have my email hosted by one company or another. That changed about a year ago when I discovered a 99% free (still have to pay for the domain) way of having my own personal domain email address. This is how I did it.

The future is hard to predict. "Always in motion the future is." - Yoda

So I won't predict what the future has in store but what I think is a necessary foundation for the future to be built upon in the computing world. Take a peak and let me know what you think the future has in store for us. http://goo.gl/Kj3JRP #future
Have you ever read a sci-fi story in which a person has a computer—of any type: phone, watch, laptop, etc.—which has all of their files and it seems to connect easily to everything? Well this could be our real future, or even our real present. We have the technology today to make this happen, ...

Introduction

I've worked in the IT industry for over 15 years, have a degree in Information Systems, and love being a Linux Sys Admin. But one thing I love more than doing the work, is teaching others how to do the work. And playing with gadgets, I like doing that too!
