Getting ON the grid: Making technology work for you.

Getting ON the grid

I havent updated this site since I opened Montana Tattoo Company in 2015. I REALLY need to work on that. Thank you for bearing with me as I work everything out.

It has been a crazy couple of years, starting the shop, breaking up with my partner and connecting with my kids. Now I am sitting here with a family and a business and a whole bunch of new tools and ideas to bring to you all!

I know that everyones experience in life is a little different, so when I write this stuff I always write from my own observational point in the universe and am generally pretty curious to how it will be received. On my own path, I’ve really only ever heard of people trying to get or stay OFF the grid, and have met a great many folks along the way whome are more than happy to use this as an excuse to avoid the struggle of learning new technology. Well, I’m here to tell everyone, it’s not 2001 anymore, its 20 fuckin 14 and they make this stuff so simple that not using can only set you back further. Yeah, it sucks giving away your information and not knowing who is watching you, But if anyone paid attention to the Edward Snowden scandal you would know that you no longer have anything to fear. Big Brother is here, they record every call, transaction, text, website, pretty much everything, so there is no use avoiding it. If you want to go “off” the grid, just watch the news and copy what the Afghans are doing, drop your phone, run into a cave, never talk to anyone, have a nice life. Basically these days, those are your options.

For those of you still reading and not halfway to your cave of choice, thanks for hearing me out. Now I don’t have the best pedigree, while my highschool friends were doing four years at the college of their choice I was doing 5 at a California State Academy. I wasn’t even really into art until about 10 years ago and have only been into computers for the last couple. However, I am still learning a lot of this stuff for myself, and so it is a great opportunity for me to talk about some topics and review some apps that can make our lives better in the Tattoo shop.
