Fred Richards

Network and Systems Administrator
Open Source project(s) I'm involved with or passionate about: 
Slackware, KVM, ArchLinux, Samba, Netfilter, VDE, Google Chrome, GNU Screen, zfs-fuse, probably many more I cannot think of right now. I tend to "stalk" a particular project on their mailing list from time to time.

Oh geez, write about me. Here it goes. I'm a long time technology enthusiast, and Linux advocate. While I was growing up, I enjoyed creative things, scientific and analytical things, and understanding people and society, not to mention a fondness for activism. When I found out about Linux and open source, I was there, because that was always me.

I've been a Linux/Unix SysAdmin for a while. It's what I enjoy, and it's what I'm doing now. It's who I am.

I think two of the most important aspects in an enterprise are context and cooperation, in both human and machine terms.
