My Introduction Post to Hive

Greetings from the Southwestern border of The Empire! I'm Kevin, and I'm from Phoenix, Arizona, now the 5th largest city in the United States. I've been on HIVE for about a month now, and figure it's about time I come out of the darkness and introduce myself.

My Job

I'm a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Technician, not grueling work. I'm mostly designing and mapping fiber optic networks as we build up the 5G infrastructure here in the Southwest.


When I'm not working, I spend most of my time playing PC games. Not long ago I started looking into blockchain based games. That's how I found Hive, through Splinterlands.

I used to draw quite well when I was younger, a teenager in the 90's, but since I haven't exercised that muscle in decades, I mostly lost it. But I would like to create some NFTs with utility on the Polygon side-chain or Tezos when I have the time.

Now that I'm on Hive...

I would like to write on this platform since I read the news constantly and always think of responses or ideas, but I never put them to words. Hopefully I'll be able to add some value to the community. I'm a big fan of the cyberpunk genre, hence my moniker and profile pics. I like to read up on futurism, science, transhumanism, cybernetics, AI, etc... so I will be following and writing about subjects surrounding that.

I'm a Biomedical Engineering dropout, I kept failing a specific class (Transport Phenomena, I think?) and ran out of money to complete the degree. Instead I ended up with a BS in Geography (Meteorology & Climatology). I care about the environment and climate change so I'll be following and writing about that too.

I'm looking forward to making my home here. I'm powering up and I'm trying out the SWAP.HIVE/PIZZA diesel pool since it gets a variety of rewards. I have an RSS reader full of stuff so I'm looking forward to sharing some interesting stories with the community going forward.



Welcome aboard.

Hello Kelvin and welcome to hive ☺ I recently got into collecting NFT so I'm definitely looking forward to seeing an introduction of your NFT in the not so distant future 👍 good luck on this new journey on hive and goodluck

Welcome to the Hive community @dystopia2030!
We sincerely hope you find everything you are looking for and have found a new home here.

Seven suggestions to consider:

  1. Guard your passwords carefully, and publish and do everything except Wallet with the Posting key
  2. Use your Active key only for wallet transactions, Keychain, Peaklock, Hivesigner, and Hivelock,
  3. The Owner key and the Master password are only used to reset compromised passwords,
  4. DO NOT lose your passwords; but copy and store them offline in a safe place,
  5. Do not publish other people's work, be it photos or written, without credit, and be sure to source all of your work, even if it is your own.
  6. An introduceyourself tag is used only once, and
  7. Do Not click on any links in memos or comments that you do not know who they belong to. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is, so the old saying goes. There is nothing free here.

I found you because @brittandjosie and @jamerussell from @heyhaveyamet presented and promoted your publication to get more exposure and help you grow faster.

If you find yourself overwhelmed and need some guidance, or if you have any questions, there are informed Hiveans available who can help you; you can click to go to The Terminal in Discord here:

Have fun and happy Hiving!

Welcome to Hive 🙌 Are you planning on writing any science fiction stories?!?!

I'm not much of a writer when it comes to science fiction. I've learned that I prefer to draw science fiction. I've been looking at the NFT Showroom, and I might be considering putting up some sci fi NFTs. I might add some textual flair to them. Thanks for asking!

That's a great idea :) !!! I hope to see some of your art soon 🙌
