J. R. Swab


I am a born-again follower of Jesus Christ with a beautiful wife and a crazy cat. I was born and grew up in Pennsylvania, where I gained an interest in computer technology and the Internet.

My teen years consisted of Boy Scouts, where I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. As well as concert band, choir, and a few parts in school musicals. Later, I attended college and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science. Never dropping my hobby of tinkering with technology both in hardware and software, as a real hacker would.

I spend most of my free time improving my knowledge in programming and general computer science. This passion started in the 3rd grade when I built my first website now I continuously look for new skills to learn. Whether it is programming or setting up a commercial grade server in my home, there is always a motivation to know more.

I run the Hacker Culture Podcast where I talk about tech, Linux, open source, and what it means to be a true hacker.
