Bio: What is Jhdmaxx? Jhdmaxx is a small online technology oriented content network created by Josh Hadley. The content includes such things as technology, news, reviews, opinions, ideas and tutorials. This content is delivered through the use of blogging, social media and video streaming. Who is Josh Hadley? Technologist, Zealous Advocate of Geekery. I have an encyclopaedic knowledge of most technology related things and can translate technology-speak into everyday language. I have always enjoyed knowing how things work, mostly with gadgetry and gizmos, taking apart and putting things together since I learnt to walk and talk and taking apart my first computer at the age of 8 out of shear curiosity as to what was inside and how it worked. I’ve always enjoyed helping others with problems and technology is one of my strongest interests. I enjoy exchanging opinions and knowledge about technology with other people and I am open minded in terms of new concepts or methods. I enjoy experimenting with new and old technologies whether they be software or hardware and due to a humble upbringing, I don’t take for granted the technology that is at my disposal. My network name (Jhdmaxx) was created in 2005, the Jhd in Jhdmaxx are three of my initials and the maxx originally meant a couple of things but this soon became irrelevant and I decided to keep it for it’s individuality. In 2007 I started using software that I found interesting and made my own various projects. These usually involved simple animation, graphic manipulation and acute video editing. None of these projects were ever released online up until this point. In 2010 I decided to make content full-time and so my website came into being. At first the content I was creating was somewhat of a hobby until I started to get some recognition and noticed a small but vibrant community forming. I then thought of an idea to make money off of the content I was producing. And so I put in place content monetization services to allow me to easily make money from what I was doing. Many were and still are curious about my schedule but I simply create and distribute when I can. I have other skills that I am continuously working on, web design, image manipulation and video editing are some of the skills I continue to work on. So to sum me up and my current career, Hello I’m Josh, I am the creator of a technology oriented content network, the forger of a small but vibrant community of geeks and I am a geek who makes money out of being myself.
