General

My name is Danny and I am located in the City of Newton, Massachusetts, USA, very close to Boston. I am in my Junior year at Newton North High School. I was born in 1991 and have lived in Newton since I was an infant (though not in the same house).

My Path

As a child I was always about virtue, whether I was aware of it or not. I loved nature and was as close to an environmentalist as someone that young can be without any real understanding of the greater world of politics built up around him. I valued life, freedom, and truth. As I grew up i became aware of environmental, political, and moral issues plaguing our world. Today, I am a leader of my school's Environmental Club which has taught me a lot about leadership and I have become absorbed in Free/Open Source Software and Technology as well as digital rights and freedoms. So here I am, supporting Ubuntu Smile :)

My Interest and Experience with Linux

I have always had a huge interest in digital rights and open source. I began using Linux early this year with Ubuntu and ever since, I have become more and more involved. I aim to get Linux on a significant number of computers at my school and get the Massachusetts Loco Team approved. I also advocate Ubuntu locally (and yes, in the real world!).

My Involvement with Ubuntu

Massachusetts Team

I am a member of the [:MassachusettsTeam:MassachusettsTeam Ubuntu LoCo Team] and I have dedicated much of my time to help the team by starting and taking on a couple [:MassachusettsTeam/Projects:projects], and organizing, expanding, and building the wiki pages for the team. I'm also often on the team's irc channel.

Team Wiki Contributions

These are all pages to which i have either created or significantly contributed to.

Minor Contributions

Outside the Team

I advocate Ubuntu at my school and would love to get my city library to switch too. I am working to get my school to try Ubuntu and have gotten the head of the Technology Department to give me a brand new school iMac (right out of the box) to install Ubuntu on and put it out for students to try and give feedback on. So far, so good!

I help friends and family switch too. Everybody loves it!
