In the spirit of @sehurlburt on Twitter: I'm always open to helping with questions about systems engineering, network engineering, DNS, SRE, working at Google, working in the infosec business, starting a business without VC, or anything else you can think of!
I'm Tim. I'm a geek. I love systems, networks, and software. I started DynDNS.org (now dyn.com, an Oracle company, of which I have no part). I now work at Google. All opinions are my own.
Bitcoin is fun to play with. Tor is becoming more and more important with each passing day. Crypto isn't just for nerds anymore.
The world's political situation is scary. Does anyone have any rocks I can hide under?

Don't answer that last part, I know the answer is "H&R Block lobbyists" and/or just "politics". :/
