About

Hello, I’m Khürt Williams. I’m an information security professional, former web developer1, avid amateur photographer, and geek. I’m also a craft ale and coffee fanatic. This weblog is where I share my incoherent and random thoughts and rants about technology and photography geekery, coffee, craft ale, diabetes, and life.

This weblog, Island in the Net, has been in existing for a while. If we count a few false starts with Google’s Blogger service, then I would say I started blogging circa 2003. But my journey as a consistent blogger started with the purchase of my first domain in 2003. I have posted independently on this website since 2003 but only discovered the Indieweb in late 2017, and have spent the time since remaking this site to make use of modern Indieweb technologies such as Post Kinds and Webmentions.

I use this website as my primary hub for online presence and communication. You’re welcome to subscribe to or consume them in any manner or on any platform you prefer. I accept comments via Webmention and traditional comment forms.
