Personal History

I am a Senior at the University of Wisconsin - Superior studying Computer Science. I found Open Source in High School when my Intro to Programming teacher brought in a few Ubuntu CD's. I have tried various Linux distros, OpenSolaris, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD, but I find my loyalty with Ubuntu and always return. My first Ubuntu was 7.04 Feisty Fawn, and I have been using Ubuntu since.

Current Memberships


  • Gathering momentum for the WisconsinTeam as the Team Contact

  • Established monthly LoCo mettings

  • Launched the Ubuntu Wisconsin domain

  • Working on the Ojibwe Translation project with TonyYarusso (it is still young, but progress is being made)

  • Planned and executed a Release Party for the Wisconsin LoCo in Superior, WI

  • voicecheck application

  • Converse with community on #ubuntu-offtopic and #ubuntu-us-wi a few hours each week
  • Edited Ubuntu Hour documentation for clarity


  • Grow the Wisconsin LoCo and foster more activity

  • Plan and collaborate with the Minnesota LoCo

  • I am very interested in experiences of new users and in the ways to make it more positive
  • Planning, with the LoCo, to participate in the upcoming Global Jam


I would like to extend my contributions to Ubuntu into the IRC Operator status. I feel like I am a good candidate because of exceeding patience, willingness to help, and a desire to grow the Ubuntu community as a whole. I would be pleased to be allowed the opportunity to assist. I have limited experience as an operator, excluding in the LoCo channel #ubuntu-us-wi, but I learn quite quickly. I've been active in the #ubuntu-offtopic community for more than a year, and other #ubuntu* channels as well, and am familiar with the Code of Conduct as well as the Ubuntu Leadership Code of Conduct.

  • Availability: Generally 22:00GMT to around 05:00 GMT
  • Generally in: #ubuntu-offtopic, #wilug, #ubuntu-us-wi, #ubuntu-us-mn, #ubuntu+1, #ubuntu-irc, and #ubuntu


  • Anthony is level-headed, good at support, and has demonstrated his commitment to the IRC community and adherence to the Code of Conduct in the time we've shared in #ubuntu-offtopic and other Ubuntu channels. I believe his addition to the #ubuntu-offtopic and #ubuntu operator lists would benefit these channels, and thus support his application to both. -- robertwall 2010-04-08 08:31:21

  • Anthony is definitely silly enough to be an op in #ubuntu-offtopic! -- funkyhat 2019-09-20 12:50:20

  • Anthony is a great asset in all the channels I see him in and I believe would be a perfect fit for an op in any Ubuntu channel. -- amaranth 2010-04-08 18:22:27



  • <exigraff> speaking on behalf of h00k, from what I've seen working with him over the last five years, he more or less embodies the philosophy of Ubuntu. he's worked hard to further the open-source, open-community mindset in every environment he's been in, and regularly "converts" people to the foss platform without having any conscious intent to do so. Smile :) I'm looking forward to seeing his work as leader of the US-Wisconsin LoCo.

  • <tonyyarusso> as the team contact for a neighboring LoCo (-us-mn), I've had the chance to work with h00k quite a bit lately on loco issues, and saw him organize a Karmic Release Party that was rather awesome. As it took place in Superior, which is a border city with Minnesota, is was a sort of joint event attended by people from both of our LoCos. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but his Google Voice / libnotify app looks pretty cool, and I'm hoping we can work together to get that packaged for Karmic (I don't know if his wiki mentions it - he expressed an interest in packaging as a future plan)

  • <MenZa> I can only +1 exigraff's "he more or less embodies the philosophy of Ubuntu." I've had the chance to share the #ubuntu-offtopic sphere with h00k for quite a while now, and he often contributes greatly to discussions held, and is very welcoming of new users in the channel.
