Clear message

Hi all. For more about me, biographically speaking, you can visit [].

But why I'm here: I'm a journalist who backed into FOSS last year during a campaign as the Green Party's candidate for Insurance Commissioner in California, finding that I could do just as much with free/open source software than I could with commercial software.

The philosophical and social ramifications of free software for all was too intriguing to pass up, so I have become an evangelist for FOSS and I find Ubuntu an excellent vehicle to bring free software to all.

I live in Santa Cruz where I make my living as a copy desk editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel. My avocation is to enlighten the masses to FOSS, and currently I publish Open Source Reporter, now on the web at [] and scheduled to be in print as a bimonthly magazine in January 2008. Also, I am working on a project with HeliOS Solutions in Austin, Texas, to both convert people to FOSS as well as to provide underprivileged kids and families with laptops.
