Personal Info

I'm a student in Bayreuth, studying Environmental Informatics, working voluntarily as a free software and open formats advocate. Furthermore help students with their network problems in our students' dormitory.

I try to help charity actions from time to time.

Ubuntu Activities

  • I've organized a Ubuntu presence at the booth of GNOME Deutschland e.V. at the Linux Tag 2005. It was a huge success. You can find some information about it at the LinuxTag2005WrapUp.

  • O'Reilly Germany asked me to write a book about Ubuntu. Concept approved by O'Reilly. Writing is in progress. Check back later for news!
  • Promotion and Collaboration with GNOME in Promotion. More information under JoshKress/PromotingUbuntu.

I will do more Ubuntu presences at other exhibitions and more active advocacy for Ubuntu. This will mainly be done by cooperating with GNOME Deutschland e.V. and can hopefully serve as an example for the marketing cooperation of GNOME and Ubuntu for other local communities.

Other Activities

  • Currently in the phase of planning, organizing and implementing the GNU Foundry together with Daniel Nümm. GNU Foundry shall be the single place for free fonts.
  • Playing around with some GNOME Code to enhance the font handling for the user.

I really think it's a good idea to form a promotion-team, because Ubuntu is what a lot of people were waiting for. Please tell me if there is any progress in this issue.
