I am entering a part of my life that is characterized by increased responsibilities, and I no longer have enough time to generate new content for this site.

Starting today, I am going to be focusing my online efforts on Here, I will continue to offer what I consider the best tech tips and tricks, but will increasingly focus on producing comprehensive content that covers issues I strongly care about, such as:

  • how to protect your data in an age of omnipresent surveillance
  • how to use free, open source software for personal empowerment and participation in international communities that seek to create a more transparent world
  • the fundamentals of computing and Web technologies, and how to use this knowledge to remain a competitive force in an ever-changing, global economy
  • software and services that will help children appreciate and learn about the technology that is shaping their world

Already, I have started posting on topics ranging from encrypted email and VPNs, to alternative cloud sync services, and I look forward to continuing to provide useful content that enables people of all experience levels to use technology to improve the quality of their lives.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all :-)
