Some of you have seen me in the chat, but I wanted to introduce myself more "formally," if you will.
I'm William. I live in Austin with my wife, four dogs and parrot. I, like others, have been extricating myself from Big Tech's ecosystem. I don't work in tech directly as an engineer or developer -- I do the marketing for a small company that takes care of small businesses' IT. So, I have general visibility into the tech world but no hands-on professional technical experience.
I've revived old puters by loading various Linux distros and such, so I have some "hobby" experience, but I'm always learning. I'll post elsewhere my most recent rabbit-hole experiences with storing and securing my family's data. It should provide plenty of laughter for those with actual technical knowledge and experience, and, hopefully, I'll get some good ideas for improvements.
I've written online since I was in high school. So, if you want to really get to know me, head over to inadequate.net and feel free to message me.
As for Disroot, thank you for accepting me! I look forward to adding all I can and learning even more from all of you! I've started a monthly donation to replace my no-longer-needed Google storage subscription.
