Privacy is about expressing yourself on your terms. This website is on my terms. My name is Will Ahern and I have been in the IT field for over 30 years. I work with small clients doing anything digital with them especially leveraging the potential of the Internet to their advantage.
I am intellectually curious about all things digital and especially the internet. Some years ago I took the approach that to benefit from the internet, personal information was no longer so private, in fact it was a commodity to be shared with little regard for its use by others. In order to get something on the internet, you had to give something. That was Google’s model and I played into it.
As I set out to develop this website and help others with privacy, I first thought my anonimity would be evidence of my skill regarding privacy. I have changed that premise and freely reveal who I am. I also have changed much of my behavior on the Internet and am much more covetous of my information. On this website, I wish to share with you tools and techniques for privacy. These are used for collaboration as well as individually.
