Hello and welcome to my web site. My name is James Dearing, a.k.a. The Open Source Ninja (since I’m so into freedom) or the Tripod Guy (a nickname I earned in college since I’m always carrying around camera equipment). I’ve registered with OneName so you can verify my identity using the blockchain.

I’ve been into electronics and computers all my life. If only I could get a wifi connection with my brain! I’m an atheist and a blogger.

Why the dragon icon? Because I like dragons. Also I have a bunch of old Internet screen names; the use of this icon with various web sites/accounts serves to unify them somewhat. So wherever you see this pixelated black dragon on a white background, it’s probably me.
