About Me

My interest in Ubuntu

I'm interested in the Ubuntu community spirit and relations and in helping to work build a community where the different parts work and talk together. I still believe that this is one of the great challenges for the Ubuntu community as it continues to grow at a fast rate. I'm also interested in the relationship between Canonical, the corporate sponsor of Ubuntu on whom Ubuntu relies heavily in so many different ways, and the volunteer community without which I am convinced that Ubuntu would not have had the success that it does. I am a strong believer in the philosophical and practical benefits of free software and will defend the Ubuntu promise wherever I see it threatened.
