I've been using Linux since 1998, starting with Red Hat. I quickly moved to Debian for a long time, then to Ubuntu during the WartyWarthog release. My local LUG is the Townsville Linux Users Group, for which I administer both the website and Freenode irc channel (#tlug) voluntary. I have a blog at http://linuxguy.bur.st/, a Launchpad page and I'm also a member of the following projects and organisations:
- Member of Ubuntu
Member of the Ubuntu DocumentationTeam
Member of Freenode Staff
Member of Linux Australia
Member of Townsville Linux Users Group
- Ubuntu IRC operator team member
How Have I Contributed to Ubuntu?
I am the primary author of the Ubuntu Starter Guide that was released with BreezyBadger and available via Yelp in every Ubuntu BreezyBadger installation. Based on ubuntuguide.org, the Ubuntu Starter Guide aims to address several key criticisms whist being technically correct and open to the Ubuntu community. I also help maintain other documents in the DocumentationTeam subversion repository and help out new contributors to Ubuntu documentation.
I also help out the WikiTeam by writing new guides or editing things I think need changing on the Ubuntu wiki. Some examples of my wiki-related work where I have contributed significantly include:
Other stuff that I have contributed to the Ubuntu community include:
- Ongoing administration of the Freenode #ubuntu IRC channel
Presentations - Promoting Ubuntu and Linux in my local community
