The web is big, you must be tired. Please take a moment to rest. This page is maintained by Bad Download (a person, place, or thing). Details are hazy around here, ideas are more important. All things are temporary.
This is not an expansive website, this page contains no games. Your stay here will be brief, there is no intention otherwise.
🧪 technology can occasionally be kinda cool.
I wonder if you find technology to be simultaneously a force for good and an empowerment for ne'er-do-wells. I do. It fascinates me. I sometimes write about this, and other times I work on projects that explore specific aspects of it.
You may find me poking around in areas related to: the web, digital information preservation, cyber security, privacy, generative models, and more.
I work professionally in the technology industry, so my personal projects are often scrappy, unfinished, and perpetually broken. "The cobbler's children have no shoes", and all that.
🕶️ not all mysteries are mysterious.
Bad Download is a pseudonym used to group together various work and projects that relate to the interests noted above. Pseudonyms are useful in helping to curate thematic identities, which are a useful tool in a modern world where our identity needs to scale to many distinct people and places.
I make no claims of being anonymous, but I do ask that if you sucessfully map this identity to others I have, please extend the same discretion to me that you'd like others to extend to you.
