bandali's homepage

Welcome to my homepage! I am a free/libre software activist and computing scientist. I wear a few hats around GNU, including as a GNU maintainer, Savannah hacker/admin, assistant GNUisance, and the founder of GNU Canada. I also volunteer with the Free Software Foundation. I currently work as a Software Engineer on the Desktop Team at Canonical.
