I am @email@example.com — hacker as in computer wizard, hacker as in tinker. Hacker as in I have a 3D printer and make stuff. Hacker as in I make browser plug-ins to mess with advertising.
Hacking is not a crime. A hacker is not by default a cyber criminal.
I ask why a lot. I want to understand how things work and why things work they way they do. I want to grok what I'm doing, not do them simply because I was told to. Folks tells me this is a strength but it also means I butt heads with folks in organizations that don't value you transparency, open communication, and best practices.
I am no longer using Github for any personal projects due to ethical objections to Co-Pilot.
So if this link works, it's not me.
My code is on GitLab.
- c0debabe creates. My blog for my development and craft hobbies.
- WhatCampaign. Firefox browser plugin that alters the UTM tracking data in page URLs.
- Browser theme for Firefox based on my community, hackers.town.
- PreDevCamp Baltimore. When webOS was still a Palm product, I helped organize local events to teach people to build apps for Enyo framework.
- hackers.town is my home online. I've been a member since 2019 and also a moderator.
- Projekt:ONI is a the flag that we a hackers.town can fly our projects under. We want to empower privacy online.
- Veilid is a project in the works. It should make splash. Stay tuned.
I graduated from University of Maryland Baltimore County in 2009 with a B.S. Information Systems (last name was Carback at the time if you need to look me up). I have been doing paid web development since 2004, starting with internships were I did real work (not fetch coffee). I've done web work in government agencies, advertising, web agencies, and non-profits.
