Well, here it is, my first entry to advogato. I'm the newest employee of the latest "free software" movement, Spindletop. Created by Lucas Wagner, Spindletop is dedicated to providing hardware solutions for Linux end users. And yes, the home of the Blackbird.

I'm excited about the project and I'm relatively new to Linux, more familiar with old school Unix. (but I'm learning -- Fast ;-).

I met with Lucas a few times and we hit it off from the beginning (which was only a couple of weeks ago). Our ideas flow when we brainstorm and I'm convinced that Spindletop will be an asset to free software end users not only because we provide high quality, clean hardware but because we are completely open to new ideas and people interested in contributing to the movement.
