  • I'm relatively new to the Fedora community. I began using Unix in 1989 and have been using Linux since 1994 when I co-founded Silicon Valley Public Access Link (SV-PAL or www.svpal.org), a FreeNet for Santa Clara County that is still a self-sustaining not for profit ISP today. I have contributed bugs and patches to several open source software projects as I have "scratched my own itch." I was a registered Debian Developer but package maintenance is not something I developed a passion for. I was a full time employee with the US branch of SuSE from 1999 to 2001 before Novell entered the picture.
