My name is Andrew Alexander Barber, a young contributor from Scotland. I am currently studying Software Development at the [http://www.centralcollege.ac.uk/ Central College of Glasgow]. I am an active Scout leader in the non-geek world, devoting a few hours per night on different Scout groups.
I am a member of the Ubuntu translation team, helping out primarily with the [https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/dapper/+lang/sco Scots] translation. I am slowly learning [https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/dapper/+lang/gd Scottish Gaelic] too, so may soon be able to contribute with that group also.
I often use Internet Relay Chat to communicate with many members of the GNU/Linux and F(l)OSS community. I am an active helper in the #ubuntu channel, as well as many other channels stretching across the network. Other semi-large channels include #tuxhacker and #tapthru. [http://tuxhacker.org TuxHacker] is a community set up by myself and others to help GNU/Linux users in a friendly way. A lot of the other channels that I am part of, are channels that I have chan-op status and help maintain their community.
I currently only tend to use one fora, which is one that I also help moderate. The fora is called [http://nuxified.org Nuxified], and is aimed at providing help to Free/Open source software. It is part of the [http://libervis.net Libervis Network] and has thus made me more active in the network as a whole. I used to help out on [http://linuxforums.org LinuxForums] but left due to my stance on many activities of the fora.
I often check on the answers section of the [http://launchpad.net Lauchpad site].
I have started working on community documentation for the Ubuntu Documentation team. Submitting articles on things I have worked on in the past and learning new things to document to help other members of the Ubuntu Community.
