I am a manager in software engineering working in security in the Portland, Oregon area. I love enabling people to build great things, while having fun, and getting rewarded for it.
I am a husband and father, raising two hard working, smart, and beautiful girls in partnership with my wonderful wife. I have one daughter released to the post-college life.
I am a Catholic, skier, geek, camper, hiker, reader, and shooter. I am a subscriber to the ancestral health template and love to lift heavy things.
I love my family, friends, tribe, and the land I live in. I’m always up to meeting more friends.
I have just published a book, Ending “Big SIS’ (The Special Interest State) and Renewing the American Republic, available at Amazon in paper ($8.60) or ebook ($3.99), and through other channels as well. It expands on the themes of an article to which you linked a couple of years ago, The Coming of the Fourth American Republic.
While I have no objection to selling books, my motives are political (i.e., helping to save the nation) more than economic, and I am anxious to reach beyond my circle of think tank analysts and political junkies and reach citizen activists.
If you would like a review copy in ebook form, send a giftable email address to SpecialInterestState@gmail.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need a Kindle reader of some kind (Kindle; iPad; cloud), but an iBooks version is in the works.
For more information, see the supporting website at http://www.SpecialInterestState.org. It is not quite done yet, but is workable. In particular, it will have links to a storehouse of relevant books and articles, and to a Current News blog.
Responding will not get you on any mailing lists. The website will have a button allowing you to sign up for continuing information on Big SIS. The only exception is that I will let you know when the website is complete.
