Hi. My name is Cheryl, and I’m an artist in Oregon. I have a nerd streak that I’ve been nurturing for many years now. I’m not a programmer, but I recreationally install Linux distros and twiddle with software, so I thought I might as well write about it. No one I meet expects me to be a Linux nerd, which is why I’m a secret geek. Other hidden talents include knowing how to milk a goat.

The philosophy of open source, free and community built software is amazing and beautiful, and that fuels my interest in the subject.
