Hello! I am John Turek. By day I am a IP/Voice Engineer for a large telecom company. By night, I give as much as possible to the open source community.

I am a Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud advocate, utilizing UEC in 3 different networks that I manage.

Over the years I have assisted in enhancing the Pidgin, centerim, xmonad, BitchX and various emacs libraries.

I have been a Unix user since the early days of SuSE, and I have utilized Ubuntu as a Server and Desktop since Warty.
