About Fab

Fabian (just call him "Fab", that's easier for everyone) is currently a university student living in Bonn, Germany and working part-time as tech support for a medium-sized ISP there. Fab has been using Linux since the summer of 2006 (at first mostly Ubuntu, he switched to Fedora on his main machine at the end of 2009) and has been co-producing and hosting the now pretty popular Linux Outlaws podcast since September 2007. He is also a co-organiser of the OggCamp free software and free culture barcamp. Fab was born in Duisburg, Germany and now lives together with his longterm-girlfriend in Bonn. Fab is an ardent supporter of the Pittsburgh Penguins, has been a devoted Bruce Springsteen fan since he was six and enjoys tinkering with technology a lot. Favourite TV shows include Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5 and Lost. He has also been known to watch Grey's Anatomy and Flight of the Conchords. Fab is a Browncoat.
