I recently had my blog added to Planet Fedora and felt that a brief introduction was in order. Despite the recent blog addition I have been a contributor to Fedora in some manner for the past two years.
I started out with the Fedora Ambassadors and continue to work in that capacity when and where I can. My work there has included helping organize the Fedora booth at Ohio Linux Fest 2006 and 2007 – both of which very successful. I am hoping for the opportunity to serve on the Fedora Ambassador Steering Committee.
I also worked with the Fedora Infrastructure team for a time. That was a great experience and a lot of fun working with those guys. I went on leave from that team at the birth of my second child which cut into my time just a bit. As my time frees backup I continue to lurk and wait for a task I can help out on and get back involved with that team – my main interests are in system administration.
So why choose now to have the blog added? Well, for one I am still here after two years! And with the New Year upon us I am hoping to increase my roles as a contributor where I can. More involvement with the Ambassadors, work on getting the Store SIG back on its feet, do what I can with the Bug Zappers and hopefully pitch in where I can with the Infrastructure team. Having a widely read forum of like minded folks can sometimes play a great role in either drumming up support for a special project or simply help keep the community aware of what is happening within the Fedora community.
I’m looking forward to what lies ahead!
