From Noisebridge
Jump to: navigation, search

I am Drew, but apparently there's already a couple of Drews here. So, feel free to refer to me as mux. Or MUX. Or Drew. I don't care.

I am on IRC as "mux", but sometimes I am "xnw", which is "mux" upside down. This is the result of a decade-old nick battle.

I am new(-ish) to San Francisco, as of July 2013. Previously I lived for two years in Mexico on my sailing trimaran 'TIE Fighter'. Prior to that I lived in Vancouver, Canada on the same sailboat. I am in SF for the next three years to work and save money for a sailing circumnavigation.

I have a number of hackerly interests, including but not limited to:

This is a picture of me with a cat.
  • internet/systems security
  • cryptography/privacy (gpg etc)
  • electronic music production
  • ham radio operation
  • Linux on a very large scale
  • alternative energy systems
  • offshore sailing
  • track/fixie cycling
  • martial arts

This is my GPG key fingerprint:

5801 7134 B54C 3D71 EBE1
CE24 F4DB 2528 5A46 A31B

The last thing I built at Noisebridge was a few custom audio and MIDI cables for my home studio. Here are some photos:

I am not actually an official associate member of Noisebridge as of yet. I am soliciting signatures on my associate member application, inasmuch as that means anything. So far I have three, from Jake, Thex and Naomi:


Hash: SHA1

i jake hereby endorse drew smith (mux)'s application for membership at noisebridge.

drew, make a wiki page on and put this signature in there, and put a link to your wiki page on your application so people can see mine and other people's signatures.
