About

Welcome to Hyper Text!

This website is by and about me, Ryan Karpowicz. I live in the Chicagoland area with my fiancé and golden retriever.

Hyper Text is starting out as many things. Mostly, it’s my resistance against what social media has become as well as the reclamation of my internet footprint. Democratization of my data should be on my terms.

The genesis of the site title came as a result of being in the right place at the right time – learning about the .dev TLD release with enough runway to properly strategize acquiring a good domain name. Plus, I think the .dev TLD is very cool – even more so than .IO, which has been established as a “techie” and small startup project TLD for some time.

Hyper Text really is about me and this website. I am an ADD/ADHD victim and cope on a daily basis – Hyper. I humbly do not consider myself a writer – yet – but I strive to be one – Text. I am passionate about all things technology, and specifically, being a maker and developer – .dev.

The thoughts and opinions expressed here are my own. Though I may own technology and other stocks through mutual funds and 401k plans, I am not incentivized for my opinions unless expressly stated. Hyper Text is a completely self funded venture. More than a hobby, but a hobby never-the-less.
