a lack of scientific rigor

This is going to be a long one because it needs some introduction to give context to my experience. Back to the issue at hand—science. It as fascinating for me how systems can function and fulfill their goal despite being critically flawed. One such system is science. When I was young I dreamed of becoming […]

seeker of truth

I consider myself a seeker of truth. Most people ascribe this title to themselves because it sounds virtuous. However, I think that most people are seekers of convenient truth. They do not actually want truth, especially not if it challenges their held believes. I dare to say that I am a seeker of truth in […]

domain update

I recently bought palladion.tech and I will slowly transition all my sites to that. The current URL palladion.it should generally still work until 04.2021 but will cease to exist after that.

Private browsing is one of the most misunderstood terms in relation to the internet. I have met countless people who believe that it is a special mode that will protect them while surfing online. Unfortunately, private browsing is not the solution to online tracking. Private browsing is by far not as private as one would […]

improve your health by fighting climate change

Congratulations humanity! You are successfully killing yourself! I read on TechCrunch the other day that the CO2 concentration in our atmosphere has climbed to over 415 PPM for the first time in human history. If you look at the graphs on the website it is difficult to dismiss this as not a big deal. If […]

travel sleeve for travel keebs

Over the past few weeks my GK64 keyboard post has become one of the most popular on my site. Because you gotta ride the wave of fame and because I have an update I decided to write a quick post. The goal with the GK64 was to have a keyboard in a smaller form-factor that […]

the problem with “the others” and climate change

This post is going to be rather political and the way I will talk about the upcoming issue will not be of good taste to most people. Through my work email I received an email to support an initiative called “Scientists For Future” that concerns itself with climate change. The reason why I post my […]
