Rad Geek People's Daily

official state media for a secessionist republic of one


This is the Rad Geek People’s Daily, featuring the Geekery Today weblog. The website was launched in its current form on 20 January 2004, with some material integrated in from other long-running websites.

The writing here is composed, edited, and managed using the WordPress open-source publishing system.

About the Author

I’m a professional archivist, and a sometime writer, tutor and independent web developer. I was born in and spent most of my youth in the Deep South; I traveled around for a good nine years in between my 20s and 30s, but eventually ended up back down in the kudzu again. I like a lot of things related to computer networks, information technology, open-source software, political radicalism, and analytic philosophy. I am an anarchist, and an individualist anarchist in particular; I do some ongoing research in history, political theory, and grassroots social movements; I enjoy cooking for small audiences, talking about ideas in person or online, and studying dead and living languages.

I am the co-editor of Markets Not Capitalism, an anthology on left-wing market anarchism and the individualist anarchist tradition. I’ve written articles for The Industrial Radical, Reason, Free Voices, and The Freeman: Ideas on Liberty. I contribute occasionally to Wikipedia and to open-source software projects. I am not on Facebook or on Twitter.

Intellectual Property and Reprinting

Everything in these pages, unless tagged otherwise, was written by me. I view all forms of intellectual property as an unjustifiable tyranny and a destructive monopoly, as far as I’m concerned, all the writing, — and all the markup, scripts, style sheets, and other technical design elements — should be considered freely available for re-use, redistribution, modification and adaptation, as free software and free content, without needing prior permission. See my anticopyright notice for more on the whys and hows. This machine kills intellectual monopolies.
