I am a journalist, programmer, husband, father and weed-puller. Back in the days before Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, I thought blogging was revolutionary and world-changing. I still do. The ability to write what you want and let the whole world read it is powerful and profound.
I believe in owning and controlling my own content. You should too. Running my blog using free software on a server that I either own or pay for is a big part of this.
Is what I write here even worth reading? I leave that up to you. I pretty much write this for me. If you like it, that’s OK.
Here are the other places my content appears:
- Microblog posts that mostly also appear on Twitter currently live here and formerly lived here.
- Most blog posts are at frugal technology, simple living and guerrilla large appliance repair
- Posts I wrote when my employer was not completely over blogging are at Click
- My WordPress.com blog is at http://passthejoe.wordpress.com

- The CTRL Freak
- 2,000 Days in the Valley
- My Jazz Guitar Journey
About this blog
The site is served on a Raspberry Pi Zero W in the coat closet. My ISP doesn’t seem to mind. I am using FreeDNS to make this work on my dynamic IP, though I haven’t really set it up server-side just yet.
Yes, there are coats in the coat closet.
