Who am I?

I’m Anthony Dean, the owner of Diverse Tech Geek.

What is Diverse Tech Geek about?

Anthony Dean headshot, December 2021
Anthony.

Diverse Tech Geek is a blog about media and technology, plus diversity issues in both.

Media topics covered include: media news; comics; and animation.

Technology topics covered include: technology news; digital media (including streaming audio, streaming video, and digital comics); blogging; Linux/open source software; and tech user guides/tips.

Where do I live?

I live in Seattle. However, I do enjoy traveling when I have the opportunity.

Who hosts my site?

The site is hosted on Digital Ocean.

What CMS (content management system) software do I use for the site?

The site’s been run on WordPress for nearly its entire history, save a brief use of Ghost. Currently, I’m running the site on a fork of WordPress, ClassicPress.

When did Diverse Tech Geek begin?

The blog launched on July 25, 2010. For years, it was named “Anthony’s Notes”; however, I changed it to its current name in 2017.

Why do I have a blog/website?

A blog allows me to write about my areas of interest and have a centralized presence online. I also use my site to keep an online portfolio of my writing work and advertise my writing services.

What are my favorite comics?

Like everyone else, I like the long-departed “Calvin and Hobbes,” “Peanuts,” and “The Far Side.”

Some of my current and recent favorite comics are listed below.

Comics/graphic novels

  • Superman, particularly his Bronze Age (1970s-80s) run
  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
  • Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
  • Lumberjanes
  • Atomic Robo
  • The Backstagers
  • Scooby-Doo Team-Up
  • Love & Capes
  • Goldie Vance

Webcomics and comic strips

  • Dinosaur Comics
  • Kyle’s Bed & Breakfast
  • Scandinavia and the World
  • AJ & Magnus
  • Questionable Content
  • Check, Please!
  • Cupid’s Arrows
  • FoxTrot
  • Joy of Tech
  • Various others (see here for a current list)

While darker-themed comics can be done well, I’m not as fond of what’s often called “grimdark” superhero fare. My favorite versions of Batman, for instance, include pre-Frank Miller comics, “Batman: The Animated Series,” and “Batman ’66.”

What operating systems do I use?

I’m currently using a Lenovo IdeaPad 330S laptop running Windows 10 and Linux Mint in a dual-boot, plus a 2020 model M1 Mac Mini.

At this time, I’m not accepting guest posts or paid links/infographics/etc. Any emails about such will be ignored.
