Some say I do it way too often. Others think that I am Nuts! While most see the value in it, I do it for the love of it. I am like the evil Sith Lord Darth Maul, bringing the masses over to the dark side of the force with my powers of the dark force. However, the “dark side” is only a particular point of the view, a perspective, and I dare say that I am the bringer of enlightenment, not like those other guys.
I teach the computing community the art and skills of using the operating system called LINUX. I piratically give one on one training, and I offer tech support to those who are willing to take the plunge into this exciting world that only until now few are venturing into. I enjoy this because I believe in the founding principle of the open source community. Freedom is more than just having something that money cannot buy, it is something that is shared and never owned.
I have proven that anyone can use LINUX. I have taught the elders of the communities, teenager and college students. I have seen totally computer illiterate people become masters within a few weeks. But best of all, it seems to bring people together. Once I leave over to the next project, the community will continue to grow as each person who learns passes that knowledge onto more people of their peers, and it continues to grow and grow.
