/me thinks "Hrm... I've been writing the FAQ since the day FC1 was released. :-) Maybe I should do one of those self-introduction things on some list, someday..." :-D I also figured that maybe it was time to sign up for the fedora-docs- list. :-) So, happy coincidence, both of these thoughts happened simultaneously. Personal Details ---------------- Full legal name: Maxwell Kanat-Alexander City, Country: San Jose, CA Profession: Founder & Computer Guy Company: Everything Solved I'm also the Release Manager of Bugzilla, as well as being one of its primary contributors. Fedora-Docs and Me ------------------ + Your goals in the Fedora Project: Be nice. Help out. Have fun. :-) + What do you want to write about? Trogdor. And love. However, failing that, I'll write the uFAQ. :-) And maybe somebody could coax me into writing some other stuff, some day... who knows. :-) + What other documentation do you want to see published? Well, I'd like to expand my Fedora Basics FAQ a bit, here and there. :-) + Do you want to edit for grammar/writing and/or technical accuracy? Well, I certainly *could*... it might take waving a dead fish in my face, though. :-) No, but seriously -- if it's ever like, down to the last minute, and you desperately need an editor, I'll do it. I'm quite good at it. :-) + Anything else special? I'm mostly just here to provide witty comments and insight if I have something to say. And maybe I'll get caught up in something interesting and contribute a bit. :-) Historical Qualifications ------------------------- + What other projects or writing have you worked on in the past? Well, http://www.fedorafaq.org/ for one. :-) I also wrote a lot of the Kerio (where I used to work) Knowledge Base, and some Bugzilla documentation here and there. Oh, and I wrote a 50-page training manual for Kerio, too. And finally (in my never-ending string of paragraphs with obviously creative and unique transitions like "and" and "also") I'm an excellent songwriter. I'm not sure how relevant that is, though. :-) Unless you want a Fedora Theme Song. + What level and type of computer skills do you have? Amazing. + What other skills do you have that might be applicable? User interface design, other so-called soft skills (people skills), programming, etc. I am really, really good at talking to people. I'm also really good at explaining how things work. I'm also particularly good at taking very busted, messy processes or code and making them shine in the morning light. + What makes you an excellent match for the project? Me and the project have been going steady for about two years, now. I think we might get engaged.
