PROFILE
Once a system administrator and distribution hacker (since 1996); I now spend my time programming (since 2000) and helping non-profit organizations and invest my time in social causes. I am working on technologies to bridge the digital divide. I am one of the first 10 developers who jumped on the Ruby on Rails bandwagon, and been hooked on to it ever since. I love mashing up technology that changes the world in some way.
