I have been an Open Source enthusiast for a very long time. I have written several open source projects, and although I have yet to find a perfect open source revenue model, I still contribute and enjoy the ride.
I think that open source, even if still not fully main stream, constantly improves our lives, even for those of us who are not a tech-geek like me.
Now things are radically different, it is now part of my job to support and ensure the success of open source in my region. Now I finally have some budget to do what I love and believe in.
Last week was my first (and very humble) contribution in August penguin, a local open source event. The organizers did not want us to officially sponsor the event but agreed that I bring food
So here it starts, my first monetary contribution to an open source initiatives. I hope and plan to support multiple events and projects in order to drive a more open future.
