I am Charles W. Johnson. This is my personal homepage.

Now, Charles Johnson is a common name; in case you are wondering,

If you're looking for information on them, you'll probably need to go elsewhere.

What I am is a web developer, a left-libertarian writer, a student of Philosophy, and sometime teacher of Logic. I was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1981. I’ve lived most of my life in the South, especially in Texas and Alabama. I studied Philosophy and Computer Science at Auburn University. I spent about eight years living in southeast Michigan (Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor) and Las Vegas, Nevada. I spent a few summers philosophy classes to gifted teenagers through the Johns Hopkins University Center for Talented Youth. I work on open-source web development, a number of individualist Anarchist research and publishing projects, and the occasional bit of philosophical writing. I currently live in Auburn, Alabama, where I share an apartment with my beloved wife, Laura Breitenbeck.
