About Me

Hi! 👋 I am Tad

Our society is rapidly converging into a malicious reality where no average person has any control over their computers and personal information. This website contains my personal efforts in-order to mitigate the effects as best as I understand and provide both knowledge and the availability of options to people.

Technical Documentation

Free as in Freedom

All of my creations and supporting frameworks used are free (as in freedom) and open source, otherwise known as FOSS.

FOSS allows you to maintain the four essential freedoms:

  • The freedom to run the program for any desired purpose
  • The freedom to learn and change how the program works
  • The freedom to redistribute the program as is
  • The freedom to redistribute the program with your own changes

Proprietary software is also often malicious to the user
