Linux Distros

  • Mint Good for new Linux users with a look and feel similar to windows
  • Ubuntu Good for new Linux users with a look and feel similar to mac
  • Tails and anonymous operating system you can boot off a USB. Useful for all that research you’re doing for that novel you’re writing.
  • Debian Great if you’re concerned about propietary/non-free firmware. Not great if you want to have a life.
  • Kali If you don’t know what Kali is you shouldn’t be using it for those ideas you get when you figure out what it’s for. You will fuck up. Useful for people who want a legit career in tech security.

Hacking Conferences

You can learn a lot from black, grey, and even whitehat hackers about security, surveillance, etc.

Learning computers

I’m also a proponent of learning everything we can about computers. It helps us become more than just consumers of technology and it empowers us to make informed decisions.

Feel free to reach out to me with any questions. My goal is to demystify this shit and make is as approachable as I can. If I don’t know the answer, we’ll figure it out together.
