About me

I work writing free software for SUSE, mainly on the infrastructure for the GNOME Project, which I co-founded.

I live in Mexico with my lovely wife Oralia Silva-Rueda. She took this nice picture of me near the bathrooms of the Tate Modern gallery in London back in 2003.

Here's a little biography of myself, in Spanish, which I wrote in 2003 for the Congreso Nacional de Software Libre in Talca, Chile.

If you are looking for a short bio that you can put in conference materials, or if you want to invite me to speat at a conference, look here.
