Also taking on contracts - Bitcoin accepted.

Open Source

Over the years I have had the pleasure and the privlege of using many open source libraries to accomplish things I've wanted to do. When writing code now I do not hesitate to make it readily available for other people as to continue the legacy of those before me who have paved the way through their dedication and generosity.

The writer must earn money in order to be able to live and to write, but he must by no means live and write for the purpose of making money.

Hacktivism

We need to show respect to those who have fought for rights in the past and confer the same rights plus more to future generations.

Recently I've been working with the RRITF(Rapid Response Internet Task Force) to raise awareness against government surveillance of its citizens.

The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.

Philosophy

My competing love in life is philosophy. I currently am reading through the classics, not bounded by era or region. I'm always trying to expand my literary circles so please get in contact.

Studies include

  • Ancient Greek Language
  • Mandarin (I want to work geo-politically)
  • Greek and Chinese classical text
  • All religious text
  • Continental / Analytical Philosophy
  • Psychoanalysis and psychology
  • Poetry
  • Politics (anarchist/communist/captitalist)
  • Physics, biology and neuroscience
  • Algorithms and programming theory

The idea is that I'm writing a book with no title, yet.

The value of life lies not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them... Whether you find satisfaction in life depends not on your tale of years, but on your will.
