First and foremost welcome to my blog. I am starting this endeavour as a means of documenting the fantastic technology I am fortunate enough to tinker with and to share that said knowledge. I hope you will join me on my journey, or drop in once in a while to have a gander.

Who am I? My name is Carlos Hernandez aka HurricaneHrndz. I have been working with technology and computers since the age of twelve and professionally since the age of nineteen. What’s more, I have loved every step of the way and would not trade my career for anything in the world.

My long tenure within this industry has shaped my views and beliefs on technology. Technology can at times be divisive, so let’s get my guiding principals right in the open.

One, I believe in the right tool for the job and will reserve the right to change my mind as time goes by. Reasoning: because this field changes all too often and what was right yesterday might not be right today or tomorrow.

Two, I prefer using Open Source over proprietary solutions. I could list countless reasons based on technological merits alone, although they matter, I prefer it because it fulfills my need to be a part of something bigger than myself. It feeds a primal longing that I genuinely believe resides within every one of us. I am one fork and pull away from the chance of being part of human history, even if it is just as a footnote, I will take it! However, no matter my drive, rule one supersedes all.

Three, have fun! I can not emphasize this enough. Today’s technology was built upon the shoulders of giants that were brave enough to experiment and play. So, do not be afraid to try something new and challenge the status quo.

Let the fun begin!
