Welcome to Daemontown!
First off let me answer your question, what is a daemon? A mythological daemon is a guardian spirit of a person or place. Daemons, in ancient Greece, were considered divine, possessors of supernatural powers, fates, guardian spirits, or angels, who gave guidance and protection.
However the term has another modern meaning regarding technology. The way I like to think of a tech daemon as a “ghost in the machine”. I first ran across the term when a friend of mine recommended that I read Daemon by Daniel Suarez. Daemon is a high-tech thriller for the wireless age that explores the consequences of a computer program running without human control—a daemon—designed to dismantle society and bring about a new world order. Great book, loved it. Read the sequel Freedom to find out who the real enemy is!
Why Daemontown? My wife, my son and I have lived life on our terms since 2012. This site has helped with that goal a what I like to refer to as my ghost in the machine. This stared as a lifestyle experiment, to design a life we wanted to live. So many years ago now, I retired from the investment industry, the stench of corruption on Wall St., Bay Street and in the US Government made it impossible to earn an honest living.
My wife is retired from her career and we sold our home in a quest to become location independent. That is, making money that we need to live from anywhere in the world. That was back in 2014 and we have lived this life for the last 8 years. Our son has been home-schooled or unschooled if you prefer, with a focus on interest lead learning.
So what can you expect from Daemontown.com?
Over the last 8 years my wife and I have tried quite a few things to make money online and independently. We both built business that enables us to live anywhere and be free from traditional constraints. So I will share what we did and the things I learned over the last 8 years so that YOU can learn the shills needed to live the life YOU want and live it anywhere you want in the world.
This website was actually our second or third step, our first was to start a side business that would allow us to travel while we both worked in traditional jobs, and we started a business (Importing sundresses) in the early 2000’s, that did that for us but until we retired it had never been a major focus, When we retired that business blew up and showed us what was possible. It was the start that we needed to see that we could make a living doing what WE WANTED to do.
Over the last two decades or so I developed a love of art, painting, digital art and photography.
