West Coast Canadian rocking the startup scene in the Middle East with expats from all over the world.

When I'm home, I'm big on high quality bacon, local beer, and homegrown awesomeness. I'm always down for a new adventure. On the other side of the planet, I usually just tag along with the locals on whatever craziness they happen to be up to.

Slowly learning the Arabic that makes up most of our data. Ma'asa Salama!

I suppose you're right. If my tinkering broke an existing system that I relied on, I wouldn't even know how to test for that. It's just too bad that groups like the EFF doesn't get massive funding from the adversaries of these intelligence agencies.
