Q: What's the point of this blog?

To talk about whatever is on my mind. It mostly consists of news items I find interesting during the day, updates on my projects, and rants about politics. It's safe to say that this blog has a solid politics and technology focus.

Q: Who are you?

Well, I guess you probably already figured out that my name is Alexander K. Gunkel and I'm a huge geek. Here are some more fun facts:

  • I live on the east side of El Paso, TX.
  • I work in IT.
  • I am a member of the Libertarian Party.
  • I prefer MacOS X and Linux to Windows.
  • There are more computers living in my house than people.
  • I am an Atheist.
  • Reading (hardcopy and online) is my favorite pastime but I read very little fiction.
  • I also have a relatively large DVD collection that's heavy on sci-fi and action.

Q: How can I contact you?

Just email me:
