ABOUTME();

I am alephalpha0. 36 and a gay texan. I am interested in the homebrew, creative, collaborative web that existed before the corporations took over the internet. I am a entry-level coder, journalist, and artist. I am forever searching for the perfect form of self-expression. I am also a drug addict and try to document my struggles with reality in my blog.

I come in peace.

ABOUTSITE();

Originated circa 2003, Rootofpi has been the digital self-curated domain of DK3. Rootofpi’s hallmarks are 1) its history is steeped in handcoding and has been mostly on the fly and off the cuff, 2) the only interests and motives operating behind its existance are self introspection, self growth, and self amusement, and 3) the term rootofpi itself; inherently nonlogical and nonsensicle. It is my home is cyberspace that has been absent for over a decade. I am incredibly satisfied and delighted to have it back in operation and broadcasting into the nether.

This current iteration of my site is fueled by Cream Sodas, its source files are hacked out with the use of the micro text editor, iterated over and generated with Hugo, and hosted using the weird demi-urge namecheap because they’re cheap and so am I.. The source code can be openly viewed at my Github Repo and is broadcast into the cyber-ether under CC BY-SA 4.0.

This site would not be in existance if it weren’t for the ability to right click on any page on the internet and view-source to gaze into the innards of a site. I encourage you to do so more often.

COREPHILOSOPHY();

Open Source and Libre software/mentality has long been a personal fascination and default got-to of mine. The idea that information is power is one of the tenants of our current reality. Information has many forms: data streams, sound waves, written lexicons, belief systems. My belief is that information should be free for anyone regardless of situational circumstances.

Since I began terrorizing the etherspace of the world wide web in 2002, I have been a staunch supporter of no www.
