Im just someone who is very passionate about computing and the technology associated with it. I have learned a great deal about our world through computers, and have met alot of interesting people through its use in the last 11 or so years. The internet is a very incredible tool, which has given me great opportunities to allow me to get very far in my own life.

I believe that now is the time to give back and contribute towards the advancement of the world wide web. To allow everyone, in every place of the world, regardless of anything and everything, to be apart of this amazing human creation.

For me the spirit of ubuntu symbolises this in every way.

Its through my everyday uses of debian, that i recognise, what a powerful idea ubuntu is. It has unlimited potential, for each of us to utilise in our own unique way. Smile :)
