Cute pieces of OpenBSD evangelism

Who am I?

Although there is a short bio on the main page, I go further here.

In my professional life, I'm a sysadmin.

In my personnal life, I'm:

  • for free/libre software (only free/libre OS run on my computers, from my router to my workstations, and I do as much as I can to limit the use of proprietary code)
  • (activist) for the the net-neutrality: I've been the vice-president of the fédération FDN
  • for liberties on the Internet, like the right to being anonymous and pseudonymous ; I've been a member of the board of directors of Nos oignons and I also did sysadmin tasks for this non-profit.
  • for self-hosting : I think it's important to continue to build the Internet as it was planned : acentric. It's not the Minitel. I self host my mail, my blog, my jabber and so on ... so should you (though after going for another ISP, my server is in the claouud).

I like : networking and system administration, mainly with OpenBSD. For me it's more playing than something else science, and I'm rather rational (mainly because my scientific studies) * Automatic watches ; I'm wearing for a couple of years now, a Seiko Diver 200 that I'm in love with.

Since the end of 2014, I'm taking pictures. (Note from now: I stopped)

I also contribute to OpenBSD (I'm danj@), and to other free software, usually linked to OpenBSD (you can check my logbook).

I'have been quoted in the newspaper Le Monde and in Amaelle Guiton's book Au coeur de la résistance numérique.
