I’m a Techie and Free (as in speech) Software Advocate from Canada. I’ve been into computers since the late 70’s.
I became interested in Free Software many years ago when I started using GNU/Linux, first, just out of curiosity and to learn about it, but it quickly became my Operating system of choice. I find that the ethos of the Free Software community strongly echoes the early days of computing when computers were far more a hobby and not the common appliance that they have become.
I am also greatly interested in issues of privacy and security and how they relate to technology and society. In my opinion there is a major struggle going on right now for personal privacy, with technology, in general, and the Internet in particular being the main battle ground.
I have also recently become interested in the “New Media” revolution, and I am taking my first steps into that world.
