I juggle. I used to do Linux consulting for Linuxcare, and I preach Open Source to anyone who will listen. It is all the same thing, really.
I was president of SVLUG (www.svlug.org) for 1998 and 1999, while the average attendance grew from about 35 per meeting to several hundred, although I can't claim credit for that. An active LUG is a good place to observe human interaction, and the abuse and nurturing of volunteers. (They work better with nurturing than abuse - remember that.)
I wrote my first computer program in 1963. My original programming language was Fortran. A good Fortran programmer can write Fortran in any language, I currently write Fortran in sh, perl, php, and others. I have never written a C program from scratch, but then I have read that there has only been one program ever written from scratch, and we all have been modifying and porting it ever since.
