We need computers to be more of a commodity.


When I drove home yesterday I realized I didn’t have my computer so I couldn’t publish my post. It was actually about the freedom of no technology, ironic because I needed my technology to get my point across. I wrote it on paper instead.

My phone died and I left my computer at my parents house. I came home and I basically fell asleep right away. I felt like I was about to have a little panic attack without my computer. What was I suppose to do? I think that shows the state of our youth these days.

Someone needs to make technology an accessory again, not a dependency

We’re so wrapped up in technology we forget to think about the world around us. That’s not okay. Someone needs to make technology an accessory again, not a dependency. How can we do this? I’m not sure, but maybe you do?

My name is Brandon, and I like to make things. I'm a Full Stack Software Engineer and Linux Administrator from Ann Arbor, Michigan. I started programming when some childhood friends and I decided to make a private Ragnarok Online server and host it in my parents basement. I got designated "code guy", fell in love, and never looked back. I started teaching myself as much as I could, and started my first online entity, a non-profit, with a high school classmate. Eventually I took this love to the University of Michigan where I studied Computer Science Engineering and Mathematics. During my time there I was lucky enough to work for two iconic tech companies, Automattic and Google. Currently, I am the Technology Director of Argo Labs, an Ann Arbor based digital engineering, design, videography, and content marketing company aiming to build a more unique web that I cofounded in July 2015 with two of my best friends.
