Dan wasted several years of life studying psychology in college before realizing that a.) he could teach himself everything he learned in college for free and more efficiently, and b.) he didn't actually want to go to school for another 12 years just a for a shot at a mediocre job. So he switched his router into WEP mode, cracked it, and was immediately and permanently addicted. His education from there on generally revolved around learning a security concept, then scripting it in Python to solidify the knowledge. This continued for the next several years until the end goal of his career was reached: getting onto PSW. Dan will likely cease all learning at this point as there is nothing left to achieve.
