Osama Tahir has gone through many phases in life. In his early days, video games consumed most of his time. The fantasy world of games was a comfortable refuge that served to shelter his mind from the ugliness of the real world. Sadly, as soon as his brain developed enough to acknowledge the existence of the physical world, he found it hard to accept how crazy mankind really is. From that day, he has been fueled by a burning desire to gauge the folly of man in an attempt to deal with the challenges of modern society. The only way forward in this endeavor that seemed to make sense was through an honest and devoted pursuit of science and technology.
Fast forward to today, Osama is now a staunch believer in the inalienable right of every citizen to freedom of expression. Writing about online privacy and security without regard to political correctness is his answer to the powers that be threatening our freedom. Deeply curious about Nature and the Universe, he is fascinated by science, intrigued by mathematics, and wishes to play guitar like Buckethead in some alternate version of reality.
