= Joe O'Dell =
Hi, My name is Joe O'Dell and I've been working on Fedora for quite a while.
me a :)
I will try to keep this short, as there are lots of places online where you can read more about me .
I'm a student at an Upper (Secondary) School in Bedfordshire (UK), I'm a GEEK and I have a passion for FLOSS, Linux and Software Freedom. :)
I have some of the more usual hobbies, other than being a geek, such as reading, making cool-beans friends and enjoying life!
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, and do have a look around!
= Me & Linux =
Although I'm still at school, I've been using Linux for quite a while now - I first started using it way back in 2005, when I finally decided to give MS the boot. I'd finally become tired of paying for an OS, while there were perfectly good ones (and even better ones!) available on the internet.
I have a passion to share Linux, and hopefully I can benefit a lot of people!

= Activities within Fedora =
* Free Media contributor since 2009!
I love being part of the FreeMedia group, as it lets me give something back to the world :)
I don't have extreme amounts of money that I can give, but by sending a couple of 25p discs every month, I know someone else has experienced linux, and that's all good!
If you are interested in seeing where I send my DVDs to, have a look at [[User:Ascenseur/FreeMedia|My FreeMedia Page]].
* Promoting Fedora
I aim to promote Fedora (but also other Linux distros) to the wide community in which I live in. This is why I have set up my own LUG ''(Linux User Group)'', as I believe that there is a lot I can help others learn, and Fedora is a part of it!
