About The Site

The will to exist is a blog that chronicles ideas, events, people, politics and technology. It has been primarily written by a single author, although guest authors sometimes appear.

About The Primary Author

I’m male, 41, married, libertarian and a naturalized citizen. I’ve lived in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Canada, Haiti, Iraq and the United States. I am a transhumanist, animal lover, technology professional/enthusiast and minarchist.

I have a master’s degree in management of information technology, and I am currently working on a master’s in English. Nothing in this blog should be considered to be an official opinion of any sort. My ideas here do not necessarily reflect the ideas of any governing body, board of important people, politician or leader, nor do they influence my professional demeanor. This blog serves as an intellectual whiteboard of sorts. Ideas change as they are tested, explored and subjected to the forces of time, social constructs and continual re-examination.

None of these tidbits defines me as a human being, but each point is a clue to my character.
