Hi, I’m dwangoAC and if you’re here it’s probably because you clicked on a donate link (thanks!). TASBot was born on December 22nd, 2013 when I first assembled him. It’s been a wild ride of ups and downs over the last decade but TAS event content I’ve led has raised more than $1.4m USD at various charity events and I aim to keep going. I supported all charity event travel costs with my day job, ultimately spending $20k more than I recouped through Patreon and elsewhere, but it was absolutely worth it. Unfortunately, I was laid off many months ago in a challenging time for the security consulting market and I’ve decided to focus on making new TASBot content instead. My kids (DefeneSam and Wrentendo) and I can’t relocate from the SF bay area and I need to net $6k per month just to survive due to high housing costs; I regret I’ll need to pause donating 10% on to charity for now but I’ll give you plenty of fun content if you can help us.
You can make a onetime donation via PayPal here (ignore the “AGDQ 2015” reference) if you’d like – thanks! (I’ve largely stepped out of the world of cryptocurrency but feel free to reach out if you’d like to donate in that way.)
Another way to donate that helps you get some nice perks is Patreon.com/dwangoAC which additionally gets you access to new content early with no ads and a shoutout in video content. It’s much appreciated!
