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 [1]. + +=> gemini://paritybit.ca/blog.gmi + +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 +seriously). + +=> https://geekcode.xyz/geek.html Create your own Geek Code +=> http://www.joereiss.net/geek/ungeek.html Decoding a Geek Code + +``` +-----BEGIN GEEK CODE BLOCK----- +Version: 3.1 +GCS/TW/O d-(+) s:- a-- C++(+++) UL+++/++++ P+>+++ L+++>++++ E--- W--(++) N+ o? +K- w--- O?
