I build things: Systems, communities, knowledge. I'm a teacher: Sharing knowledge and understanding is in my nature. I'll happily take the time to help someone understand something if they truly want to learn. I connect things: The IT world is rapidly changing, and I seek to stay on top of what is going on in my industry to steer organizations to where they need to be. I believe in Free Software: Not just Open Source, but Free Software. Access to information, and participation in the digital world, is a right of every person.
