-Mike Gerwitz is a [free (as in freedom) software][0] [hacker] and activist
-with a focus on user privacy and security.
-While much of his earlier experience focused on web development, most of his
-free time is now spent researching cryptography; compilers; mathematics;
-security and privacy; and various other fields. He also closely follows the
-work of the [Free Software Foundation][0],
-[Electronic Frontier Foundation][3], and other entities devoted to free
-information and free society.
-
-Mike is the author of [GNU ease.js][easejs]; a member of the
-[GNU evaluation][gnueval] team; holds an administrative role in GNU; and is
-a volunteer for various other aspects of the [GNU Project] and the
-[Free Software Foundation].
-
-Mike is a [hacker], not a [cracker]---the latter breaks the security of
-systems, while the former expresses playful creativity in their work.
-
-Outside of his field, Mike enjoys time with his family---including his
-wife and two sons---who keep him very busy and help to keep him sane. Mike
-also has a fascination with a wide range of sciences that he wishes he had
-the time to devote to researching.
-
-A great deal of information regarding Mike's opinions on various topics can be
-found throughout this website. Much of this site is devoted to his thoughts and
-ramblings on various matters and so will contain material that is subject to
-strong bias; the reader is encouraged to construct his or her own opinions.
-Formal papers contain no such influence without rationale and references.
-
-Mike may be contacted at mtg at gnu dot org; he does not make use of "social
-media" websites, though he may (or may not) respond to queries on websites
-that he is a member of, and he does host his
-[own GNU Social instance][social].
-
-(Note: This website itself is free/libre---the source code is available via
-the commit hash links in the footer of various pages and the content is
-licensed for free distribution and, in most cases, modification.)
