why i didn't go into netsec Show more
originally when i started pursuing my CS degree I wanted to go into netsec. I had been going to hacker conferences for years, and considered myself part of that community.
quickly into my schooling i realized that i wouldn't be able to do the work without working with law enforcement, the department of defense, or the nsa. so, i didn't pursue that. i tried to work ethical dev jobs for awhile, but i've come to the conclusion that the entire tech industry is some of the worst manifestations of capitalism.
now i sell apples at a food co-op and hustle to survive
