Joe O'Dell

Hi, My name is Joe O'Dell and I've been working on Fedora for quite a while.

Do you want a *really* short Bio? Ok.

  • I'm 14
  • I live in the UK
  • I attend a Secondary School
  • I have used Linux for ages
  • I love Linux
  • I'm part of the FreeMedia Program

Do you want more? Email me, the address is ascenseur@fedoraproject.org

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!

Contact

I welcome you to contact me via phone/SIP (I'd quite like a nice chat!), but please try to use email/IRC first, as I am not always at my desk to recieve phone calls. If it's extremely urgent, ring me via the details below

Me on the Internet

I have a collection of sites floating around the website, please visit them!

  • My Blog - Here I post about anything and everything!
  • bedsLUG - This is the LUG (Linux User Group) that I am running for Bedfordshire, UK.
  • anagram:creative - I run a creative design business, it helps me buy things that I need for school!
  • Joe O'Dell - This is my page on another Linux distro's wiki.
  • Launchpad: ascenseur - I help translate on Launchpad.net, this is my page
  • Wikipedia: Vie_ascenseur - I contribute to Wikipedia in my spare time, so this is another page of mine.

I also have some useful sites which I'd quite like you to visit!

  • DFEY - DFEY is a group of young people from across the UK who aim to promote FLOSS and Libre to other young people and schools. I'm a member :)

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 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!

If you're interested in my LUG, have a look at bedslug.co.cc
