Defiant Sloth is written by Paul Williams.

Born and raised in Minnesota; transplanted to Chicago in 2004. Been there since.

Now residing in the hipster pen of Humboldt Park, you can usually find me drifting from watering hole to greasy taqueria under cover of night.

Vocal scoundrel of Defiant Sloth, where you'll find spirited discourse on the importance of privacy, data ownership, and security in the modern era. Other miscellany inevitably happens, too.
