I'm a blind guy with a passion for free software, open protocols, and the Linux operating system.

My latest project is the Blind and Low Vision Unix Users Group, BLVUUG. Its homepage is blvuug.org.

I used to host a speech-enabled version of the Arch Linux install media, called TalkingArch, on this site. That is only of historical relevance, because the Arch Linux ISO now includes support for braille and speech output.
