Kurt Forsberg has lived in Tacoma for 33 of the 34 years he has spent on planet Earth. The other year was spent in Pennsylvania. If you'd like to know about the time he has spent on other planets, just come to a Taclug meeting and ask him. He has been dabbling with Linux for about 13 years, and using it almost exclusively for about 10. His specialty is installing Linux on older computers with limited system resources, since he is too broke to upgrade. Although he has tried many different distributions, his favorite is Debian.
Kurt attends school full time, is a former electronics technician, and is interested in working on hardware projects using open source software. His hobbies include singing and brewing British style ales. Here he is enjoying a pint of his homebrewed porter and conversing with Chris Negus at the 2004 Taclug barbecue/yard sale.
Kurt has been tossing around the idea of writing a manifesto, but it's still just an outline.
