info

I'm Paul Wise (aka pabs) from Australia, Earth. I'm interested in free software, open publishing, activist geekery, activism, environmental science/gis, molecular biology/bioinformatics and other things. I have a BSc (in Biotechnology and Environmental Science) and am living in WA for the near future.

work

I do freelance computer related work, including development, hosting, office setups and so on. Please contact me for more information. My résumé is available in HTML form.

contact

If you want to contact me, download my public vCard and contact me using the most appropriate method (email/chat/im/irc/etc). If it is about one of my patches or projects, please use the bug tracker or mailing list if available. I prefer gpg encrypted email if you have that capability and I prefer to chat using the off the record messaging if possible. Be sure to upload your GPG key to the keyserver network before sending me encrypted mail.

gpg/ssh keys

My gpg key(s) are available from the public keyserver network and from keys.indymedia.org. You can also download my current gpg key. I generally generate a new ssh key for each server, but you can download my main ssh key (gpg signature).

You can view my browser bookmarks. I also have an old file of cool links that I collected ages ago.

favorites

I use the testing distribution of Debian GNU/Linux. I use gnome, scite/nano/gedit, iceweasel, the gimp, xchat/pidgin, evolution/mutt and various other programs.
