Welcome

Hi, thanks for stopping by IanSaxon.com, my personal homepage and launch pad for my blog, web design portfolio, and academic projects.

Security Blog

Defending the Kingdom is where I wrote about online and offline security and privacy solutions for laypeople from 2006 to 2012.

There's also a Defending the Kingdom eBook that has all the best content from the main site (and a lot of completely new stuff) to keep you secure. Check out the eBook page to get the first five pages free!

I designed the UBC Real Estate Club website, and posted real estate related news and research articles between 2005 and 2006.

Qekeg Energy Saving Corporation. This company was designed to lease energy efficient lights to homeowners looking for cost savings on their electric bills, but it didn't quite get off the ground.
