  • 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, 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 while I respect the important work of package maintenance it is not something I developed a passion for. I was a full time employee with the US branch of SuSE Linux from 1999 to 2001.


Activities within Fedora

  • I am a Fedora Ambassador. I have given out many Fedora CDs at Linux User Groups (LUGs) and generally advocate for free software in the many LUGs I visit in California.
  • Working on DIY Sleeve
  • I run Fedora on my OLPC XO-1 and have been attending the OLPC San Francisco meetings.
  • My plans and ideas will evolve as I learn where I can best contribute.
