About this site

Hi, πŸ‘‹ I'm Andre. A tech enthusiast and an indieweb newcomer.

I've worked with tech and infosec for over a decade, and now I'm studying how to code.

This website is mostly a collection of thoughts, notes and technical content about tech, open source, self-hosting, privacy, and security. I'm probably writing about other things too.

Most of my wish to write a blog came when I started quitting from upstream social media platforms and I felt quite displaced, as many of my friends are more into digital than real world.

There are so many great things in tech and in science, and I understand that "digital" is where everybody is leaning towards, however the way big tech companies make it looks like is so dangerous and deceptive (see, for instance, the new Meta web 3.0 bullshit). People are giving away their personal information, there are data miners everywhere, growing surveillance scams, etc. And it's sad.

That's why I really see that personal spaces like this (a simple, accessible, and decentralized blog) are great to share our opinions, maybe to help other people, generate good discussions, and learn more.

This website

I used to serve my static files using Jekyll and a source code repository, but now this site is built upon Ghost, and I'm using a custom theme that you can find here.

Hosting is provided by Oracle Cloud, and I also have Cloudflare CDN sitting in front of my VPS.
