About Me


Do all the things I thought I never could


Information freedom activist and digital nomad. I spend my time writing code, essays & articles, giving talks, teaching, and debating, wrestling with governments and building technical, political and social infrastructure.


Information is the prerequisite to enlightenment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to host a lot, now I'm travelling mostly. Meetups are fun!


Have hosted probably about 50 people through CS and possibly another 50 that I've randomly run into somehow.. have couchsurfed in a couple of countries and made a lot of great friends in the process.


Traveling, reading, speculative fiction; Mathematics, computing, complexity, nature, weather, genetics, science in general; Getting things done - outrageous as they may be. Exotic beer, exotic food, coffee houses, activism, meeting new people. Climbing mountains, driving in the countryside. Exploring old stuff. History!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Rainstorm rolling in over the Indian countryside. Massive lightning storms. Sandstorms. I guess I like storms.
