About

I am a technical writer and Linux enthusiast. I have over a decade of computer industry experience in roles that include Web Development, IT Support, System Administration, Release Engineering, and Technical Communications. I'm a co-organizer for the Seattle LinuxChix chapter and I am currently working on several documents for the next Ubuntu release.

I currently use Ubuntu (Gnome) and Ubuntu Server Edition (with and without ubuntu-desktop). I've been using Ubuntu since 5.10.

For more information about me, visit my personal site at http://www.augustinalareina.com

I also keep a technology blog at http://augustinalareina.wordpress.com
