A brief thought on “Political Correctness”

Political correctness is a distraction. The purpose of language is to communicate, not to follow the latest trend. The correct term is that which gets the point across. If you want subjective correctness independent of functional viability, criticize a person's outfit, not their terms.

About Me

Believe it or not, I've never been to jail. Not even for a night. I quit going to bars by the time my fake ID was unnecessary, and I quit hacking into businesses and governments once they started paying me.

Now I just provide for my family and try not to notice politics. I get too angry when I watch how much of my income is taken from me, how it is used, and who is doing it. For the same reason, I can't bear to acknowledge celebrities.

After high school, I went to U of K but the outdated computer engineering curriculum and the seemingly endless amounts of money to be made with my internet specific skills drew me to larger tech markets. I have worked in Silicon Valley, New York City, and have settled in Atlanta.
