Rides and Tours  - 
 
The 102nd running of the longest sporting event in the world, the Tour de France, begins Saturday. The race first took place in 1903, and it has continued every year since, except during WWI and WWII. In the 112 years since that first race, the technology utilized by the riders has changed dramatically. Today, the racers ride bikes with frames made of advanced carbon fiber.

"According to the data -- which has not been independently verified at the time of writing -- Hacking Team counts customers in countries including Italy, the US, Spain, Singapore, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Luxembourg, Egypt, Oman, Panama, Turkey, the UAE, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Poland, Thailand, Denmark and Israel, among others.

The customer client list, past and present, includes a vast list of government agencies and private companies. To name but a few, the documents indicate Barclays, the Egyptian MOD, the FBI, the Lebanon Army Forces and a multitude of intelligence agencies worldwide are past or current customers..."

Introduction

I am currently CTO for crowdfunding startup dana.io as well as the Secretary and VP of Sponsorship for VeloFemmes Canada CCC

I am a strong community development advocate with numerous years of board experience including the BC Council for International Cooperation (current Treasurer), VeloFemmes Canada CCC (current Secretary), Free Geek Vancouver (former Chair), Vancouver Community NetSociety Promoting Environmental Conservation and the Artists' Legal Outreach Society

My technical expertise includes implementation of commodity and re-purposed hardware, open standards and free software - Ubuntu for servers & workstations, Android for tablets and mobile - as well as the Bitcoin e-payment protocol and social media strategy and web service development using the Drupal web community framework.

I have an abiding interest in martial arts, am an avid meditator in the Theravada Buddhist mindfulness tradition, and help maintain webservices for the D.I.Y. Dharma community and Birken Forest Monastery.

Philosophically I find the intregral vision as outlined by Sri Aurobindo, Ken Wilber, et al. the most compelling worldview. I am part of the team that developed metaintegral.org.
