Making History

Undefined

If they told me back in 2003 I couldn't believe it. That 8 years later I will be a part of a successfull and thriving free software organization with lot of young and happy people, international affiliations and a reference for GNU/Linux in Greece.

We happened to start from 0. Bohemians at the port. I loved that. Then straightforward to the most dense financial district of the Balkans. After that two tough years into the deep hole of the financial crisis, bleeding to support and support with bleeding.

The view is beautiful from the top

At July 8th 2011, three years have passed since I re-entered "into the game" of the Free Software after a meditative stop of one and a half year in order to dedicate to my studies. Through these three years there were good and bad moments but it was always a struggle for the best and most qualitative promotion of Free Software and its philosophy. I stuck with other people and saw also many shooting stars passing by in front of my eyes. At the end what matters, is to encounter with all difficulties in patience and prudence.

Why I say no to Google+

Update: 25/12/2012 - I denounce this article, but not in total. The reasons against Google+ and Facebook still remain. But it is obvious that Facebook and Google+ are needed to keep in touch with many people. Use them as a tool, use them wisely.

These days there is a phrenitis on the web about a new social network called Google+. Some months ago I proudly debarked from the Google ship, stop using Google Docs, Calendar, Picasa, Blogger, Reader and Youtube. I continue to use Gmail, Google Translate and seeing Youtube videos without subscription.

That's what I can call a real hackerspace!

Today when I opened my laptop for the second time in the day, I got a very pleasant surprise. The surprise comes from Efstathios Xatzikiriakidis Arduino hacker who is a friend and a founding member of Thessaloniki's Hackerspace.

Free Software: Candle in the Dark

Undefined

We live in turbulent times, that's for sure and the financial crisis is the one to blame. There is a very difficult situation in my country these days and lately there is much anger and discord among people. The Free Software Community is a part of the society, so it is affected by these phenomena. Many people don't realize one thing. That Free Software from its conception until now is not only an alternative software without viruses or a software given gratis. Is another way of life. Another point of view. Another development model which can help confront with the crisis.
