About

Who am I?

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

What is Diverse Tech Geek about?

Headshot of myselfDiverse Tech Geek is a blog about my interests in media and technology.

Media topics covered on my blog include: media news; comics; animation; trivia; and diversity issues.

Technology topics covered on my blog include: tech industry news; digital media (streaming audio/video, digital comics); Android apps; WordPress/blogging; Linux/open source software; guides; and more.

Regular features on my blog include:

  • Upcoming comics picks: A look at upcoming comics of interest from DC, Marvel, and smaller/independent comic publishers.

Where do I live?

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

The site itself is hosted on Digital Ocean.

When did Diverse Tech Geek begin?

I first started blogging in 2002. However, I’ve gone through several versions of my blog over the years. The modern incarnation of my blog launched on July 25, 2010. For years, it was named “Anthony’s Notes”; however, I changed it to its current name as of September 10, 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, advertise my writing services, and develop my WordPress skills.

What are my favorite comics?

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

Some of my current favorite comic books and webcomics are listed below.

Comic books

  • Superman, particularly his Bronze Age (1970s-80s) run, as well as his pre-New 52 (1990s-2000s) version.
  • The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl
  • Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
  • Lumberjanes
  • Atomic Robo
  • Goldie Vance

Newspaper comic strips

  • Pearls Before Swine
  • FoxTrot

Webcomics

While darker-themed comics can be done well, I’m not as fond of what’s often called “grimdark” superhero fare. A Kate Leth comic strip sums up my feelings on those types of comics.

What operating systems do I use?

I’m currently using Chrome OS (via a Toshiba Chromebook) and an older HP laptop running Ubuntu MATE. At work, I use a Windows machine.
