London based. Teaching myself Linux Administation off the back of a co-operative printing project (www.threadme.co.uk), wanting to bring more of our services in house. This splintered off into a multi-vendor project (www.threadmarket.co.uk). The co-operatives I am a member of are members of the secondary co-op Radical Routes (www.radicalroutes.org). I did handle the IT infrastructure at Footprinnt, too (www.footprinters.co.uk)
I'm a bike mechanic at an anarchist bike space in London (www.56a.org.uk/bikeworkshop.html). I am interested in spaces like these which are held in common, where environments of mutual learning are fostered. Spaces where the lines between learner/teacher, mechanic/customer, friend/stranger are blurred.
I'm currently attending two night courses; one in Networking and Linux Administration and another in SQL and Database design.
I'm also interested to hear how people self-organise their time outside of institutions. How to set goals and feel successful with your acheivments. There seems to be a tyranny to structure-less-ness which easily slips into longer working hours with less and less contentedness with what does get done... That said I'm not sure I'd have it any other way. I love learning.
