Hello, World!

Welcome to my personal space, where you will find streamlined collections of information from multiple platforms related to GrapheneOS and things I’m passionate about.

I spend a lot of time on the internet trying to dig past all the misleading and/or dishonest marketing nonsense that mainstream news media outlets and ‘technical’ blogs making claims on security and privacy topics. The the misinformation is then never challenged by the vast majority, leading to more problems then solutions in today’s society.

I spend a lot of time on the internet trying to dig past all the misleading and/or dishonest marketing nonsense that mainstream news media outlets and ‘technical’ blogs making claims on security and privacy topics. The misinformation is often misinterpreted by the vast majority, leading to more problems then solutions in today’s society.

I decided to gather and collect as much in depth educational knowledge and technical facts from developers and security research professionals in the open-source community.

The purpose of this site #

The purpose of my website is to have a place where I can layout my notes while presenting my findings in a structured and organized format; providing citations and resources at the same time. This also allows me to have easier access to and more easily share the information during discussions on topics being covered in real-time, and to streamline my personal development growth in the subjects that I’m passionate about.

There will also be quite a bit of streamlined information on here that will not be my own writing, but instead direct copy and pastes with credited quotes and citations to important announcements and explanations from multiple platforms, related to GrapheneOS.

Inspirations #

My biggest inspiration and influence for security and privacy comes from the lead developer of the GrapheneOS project, Daniel Micay. The massive amounts of hurdles and history Daniel has been/is dealing with and overcoming, while continuing to power through coding/development - is truly amazing. Thank you for being a positive role model in my life Daniel.

Also, I would also like to give a shout out and a big thank you to my friend Peter Easton, whom is also part of the GrapheneOS project team. Your kind words of wisdom and the way you handle your tier-one support position with users in live chat, is very professional, polite, and empathetic. This has and is helping me progress my own personal development communication skills and a better understanding of emotional intelligence in action.

A mention to a very good friend and inspiration of mine is j43. Thank you for being there for me always and a blessing to have you in my life.

Action #

I am part taking in providing educational comments and helping with correcting false information on Youtube, Reddit, Twitter, and Hacker News, as well as writing posts on this blog and working on my projects section. In support of the GrapheneOS project with facts regarding the malicious misinformation and false claims being spread by certain nefarious individuals and organizations.

They are actively orchestrating and engaging directly in some cases and through proxies, as well as sock-puppet alternative accounts, manipulating others and encouraging to part take in incredibly underhanded attacks while trying to undermine and harm the GrapheneOS project, its developers, contributors, community members and donators.

I strongly believe in what the GrapheneOS project is doing and what it stands for at it’s core and is extremely important for all of society. The security, privacy, knowledge base, development, transparency, care to attention in every detail and the simply the sheer integrity and honesty, sheds a bit of light on some of the darkness in the tech industry.

The core values of the human beings involved in the project, is what I truly love and relate to in my humble opinion. I stand by them and what they are doing no matter what! I am not a developer, nor as technically skilled nor advanced as most of the team or community moderators, but what I do have is spirit and fight. I will help anyway I can to combat bully’s and manipulators whom are set on selling marketing instead of privacy and security.

These people are driven by greed, click views, subscribers, ego, pride and selfish self centered personal gains, bending the facts and reality to suite their own truth for monetary gains at the cost of living in uncertainty and fud to others, playing on their lack of experience and knowledge to know any better. They use current event words and topics to twist and turn and lie in order to keep their well of chaos going. After all, there is opportunity for bad characters to thrive in it.

It is wrong on so many levels, morally and ethically, to say the least.

Which is why I created the Asymmetric Engagement Project.

Systems #

I am big fan of Arch Linux and Microsoft Windows. I spend quite a bit of time reading the Arch Wiki. It is my co-main operating system of choice and here’s why:

Arch Linux provides what is widely regarded as the most thorough and comprehensive distribution wiki. Arch provides more expedient support for building custom, installable packages from outside sources, with a ports-like package build system. Arch offers the Arch Build System, an actual ports-like system and also the AUR, a very large collection of PKGBUILDs contributed by users. Arch Linux provides many thousands of binary packages within its official repositories. Arch is a rolling-release system. Arch supplies a package management system in pacman which offers automatic dependency resolution and allows for more automated system upgrades. If you’d like more details, here is an in depth comparison to other linux operating system distributions.

I will add the reasons for Microsoft Windows being my co-main operating of choice here soon too.

I also indulge a portion of my time reading the Whonix Wiki and enjoy exploring the Whonix operating system using the Kernel-based Virtual Machine (virtualization module in the Linux kernel that allows the kernel to function as a hypervisor) to run the OS in a virtual machine.

I plan on following Duck’s guide on Hacking Whonix onto Hyper-V in the very near future.
