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!

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:Massachusetts Ubuntu LoCo Team] and I have helped to start and run some [:MassachusettsTeam/Projects:projects] as well as attended [:MassachusettsTeam/Events:events] and [:MassachusettsTeam/Meetings:meetings]. I have also done a lot of work creating, organizing, and editing our team wiki.

Team Wiki Contributions

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

Outside contributions

I advocate Ubuntu at my school and would love to get my city library to switch too. I am working with my school to test out 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!
