About Us

Current contributors and VPN researchers:

Gary Stevens

Perfectly happy in his career as a front-end website developer, Gary Stevens’ jaw almost hit the floor for real the first time he was introduced to and began to wrap his brain around the possibilities inherent in blockchain technology.

For some, meh, it’s just another bit of technical jargon you meet strolling down the information highway. For others like Gary Stevens, it changed the focus of his career.

If you ask him, he’ll tell you that it just might be the greatest invention since this whole internet-thingie started. Currently working in development with one of the second generation of cryptocurrencies – Ethereum.

Lucas Johnson

What originally began as a simple website design business blew up over the course of 15 years until Lucas Johnson found himself running a full service web design and hosting agency, responsible for more than 700 sites throughout the US and Australia.

Along the way, he became an expert on distributed CPU systems for businesses – a fascinating area of study if you have the right kind of brain.With this background, it’s not difficult to see why Lucas has become something of a geek about online security and has made it his mission to spread the word about fighting back against privacy intrusion and cyber criminals.

Xue Wen Zhang

With a serious background in running security systems for multinational corporations, Xue Wen Zhang noticed there were some pretty cool things happening in Australia, and the weather was right if you like heat.

Xue came to Sydney when he was 18 and spent time with feet on the ground – or hands on the keyboard as the case may be – foiling the best attempts of hackers.

Around here, we love his nose for detecting and publicizing intrusion attempts, whether it be from the hacker down the street or your “friendly” government agency.

Tim Goldstone

Another serious brain with a potent background in the IT field. In particular, Tim has specialized in creating and maintaining CPU systems for non-profit organizations.

Sounds exciting, right? Okay, maybe it doesn’t, but today’s environment is a far cry from your grandfather’s CPU industry., especially when it comes to the idea of distributed processing. We’ve mentioned this a few times now.

If you’re not in the know, bleeding edge online businesses are in love with the idea of using multiple processors to efficiently run an application. Want to know more? Ask Tim. He’ll probably tell you.

Kelly Gilderson

What the bloody hell would we want with a guy with a marketing background? Actually, Kelly Gilderson is more than “just” a marketer. We fell in love with his work wrangling enterprise security solutions in a variety of environments.

Furthermore, it’s not often you find in the same body the kind of creative right brain thinking it takes to publicize a company properly AND be able to shift into left brain mode at the drop of a hat, sifting code and enjoying it.

That’s our Kelly and we’re glad to have him on the side of the good guys at PrivacyAustralia.

What metrics do we look at?

When reviewing a privacy tool or service, we analyse their offerings from top to bottom, covering their support, pricing, usability, speeds and much more. If it’s important to you, it’s important to us, which is why we’re one of the most comprehensive privacy focused websites on the web today.
