about

We spent a lot of time in tech and want to make a change. The digital world is just as carnivorous as real life industrialism. If you have digital needs, we'll share insights, show you all the implications (that we know of), and deobfuscate a world deliberately made complex.

Should your topic be out of range, there's a good chance we know someone who might be able to help.

No 'linkedin' or similar shallowness here. Let's talk instead.

independent consulting

Real humans depend on 3rd parties to some extent. We choose small, transparent upstream providers as much as possible, and only where necessary. Yet the smallest are still run by people a thousand times richer than the vast majority - you are a mere number. Similarly, even in development, you always depend on entities outside your control.

We find appropriate solutions with you, and without conflicts of interest.

Transparency

There are no 99.xx% uptime guarantees, or 24/7 SLAs. This is the elusive realm of corporate monopolists. Yet, even they still have downtimes. It also depends on your choices: Popular 'rapid-release' software is chaotic. Classic setups can run for years. The simpler, the better.

We provide honest perspectives and options.

discerning

We help level the playing field by taking sales out of the equation. If we don't want to wake up in total dystopia tomorrow, we better start caring today. We can start by sharing expertise and resources.

Most are defenseless in the digital world; unaware of the schemes and consequences. We are unbound. If your ideal solution is analog, we'll suggest it. If you can't afford much, we'll explore shared options.

Insight is imperative to choice.

training

Learn how and why. Understand your machines before your machines understand you.

From basic introductions to securing your E-Mail, or maintaining your personal system, to advanced topics like encrypted systems or migrating to Linux, feel free to suggest any topic. Travel is possible if you can come up for it, and borders can be crossed.

Why no clickable form? It'd need maintenance if done right. Straight mail works without 3rd parties or dynamic languages.

Being donation based means we depend on goodwill and random chance. Dedicated personal effort instead of corporate droning costs a lot of time and energy. We need to eat and sleep too.
