I am a man who was born in Canada, but I fled the country at about four years of age. I currently live in San Antonio, Texas, but am likely going to move soon. Since August 2016 I have been unsustainably self-employed. In January I started SporeStack and I hope that some day it can provide an adequate source of income. In the meanwhile, I am open to half-time, remote work. I have a fiction book in the works, in the final editing stages. And I tend use too many commas. I'm working on it.
I generally identify as an engineer. I love writing. I can enjoy cooking. I like riding motorcycles and working on them. I'm quite fond of Ayn Rand and Austrian Economics. For better or worse, I have opinions on a number of subjects and am happy to talk about most anything. I try to understand all that I can. I hope to make myself a better man tomorrow than I was today.
I identify with most of the tenents of anarcho-capitalism and objectivism. I lean a little to the anarcho-capitalist side of the two, with a dash of argorism and crypto-anarchist.
About the site
You'll see some things that look like question/answers. That's from back when I was running AskTeran.com (registered by a former coworker). More or less defunct, but I'd probably answer a question if you asked me to. There's also some posts that were on Craigslist, generally a bit older. Through my Craigslist ads I've formed wonderful friendships, flown to Ohio to meet a stranger, indirectly caused a marriage and two pregnancies, and likely bought the first half of a motorcycle for Bitcoin.
If you keep reading, you'll also see some really old stuff with a bit of change in time.
