(-: I came to GNU/Linux in 1999 when a friend at a summer camp was doing some obscure thing at a workstation in a library. It looked like DOS, but remote. He said, "It's Linux." At the time, I was in the start of high school. My desktop computer on Windows 98 was crashing every twenty minutes, so I figured this would be a good time to try out what he was talking about. I stumbled across the GNU Manifesto in a text editor named Emacs, and I quickly understood the Free Software values underlying so much of the system. In addition to liberating, the system was empowering, and I set up a machine (eventually running Debian) to be a home network gateway at my house. Software like GNU HTTP Tunnel helped teach me about connecting networks that didn't want to be connected, and as OpenSSL had a few vulnerabilities in the coming few years I learned about hand-compiling packages when my distributor (Mandrake at the time) stopped shipping updates. Quickly I saw the value of Debian, so in 2002 I switched my desktop to that. Additionally to the above, today I run a mail/web/DNS server for myself, some friends, and Students for Free Culture <freeculture.org>, and in college I quickly became a member of the Association for Computing Machinery <http://acm.jhu.edu>. At ACM, with others (mainly Albert Lee in my time), I worked on setting up and standardizing new desktops through the use of a metapackage (NOT of Debian archive quality!) and switching our authentication from NIS to LDAP. In 2005 I began to follow up on my urge to contribute to Debian, so I started work on a few small packages (cue2toc and ccd2iso) and now also maintain a more significant package, the alpine mail user agent. 2.
