+# About Me
+My name is Jake though I usually go by the handle "jbauer" online. I am a
+student of computer science with a strong interest in computer security,
+networking, and low-level stuff. I enjoy programming, figuring out how systems
+work, and completing hacking challenges when I have/make the time. I try to
+program software with simplicity and accessibility in mind.
+My spare time is usually occupied with learning, programming, gardening, or
+getting outside. I also enjoy watching talks from conferences and listening to
+technology podcasts such as Darknet Diaries and those from Jupiter Broadcasting
+to expose me to new ideas and ways of thinking. I try to keep up with the goings
+on in the Linux community by reading LWN.net of which I am a
+subscriber. Additionally, I write the occasional blog post expressing my views
+on various subjects or documenting my technological encounters/adventures. Those
+can be found on the blog page .
+I am a staunch supporter of online freedom, privacy rights, and the advancement
+of society through free and open access to information and knowledge. These are
+the main reasons why I advocate for free (as in freedom) software and why I
+support the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the Wikimedia Foundation through
+monetary contributions. If you also share these values and have the means to
+donate, I would encourage you to also make either a time- or money-based
+contribution to those organizations or other organizations with similar values.
+## Geek Code
+The Geek Code is a humorous way to tell other geeks a bit about myself in the
+context of geekiness. (It lacks a bit of nuance, so don't take it too
