About the Author

I’m a Christian, a husband, and a father. I earned a Computer Science degree many years ago and at the time I loved the services the still-growing tech companies provided. As these companies transformed from little startups into the corporate behemoths that rule the world, I started to become more and more concerned, but it wasn’t until 2020 and the silencing of dissent on a variety of topics that I saw a glimpse of the dystopia they were building. I started building a home server to get away from their products and one day I realized I should maybe write down what I was doing in case I needed it in the future. Before I could begin, I realized I probably wasn’t alone and other people might benefit from what I was writing, and BigBadTech was born.
