I know that it can be unnecessary but let me do this. Sorry if it cause some
loss of time. =/

Hello everyone, please let me tell you my history with Fedora and The Free
software world.

I'm Guilherme Gonçalves from Rio de Janeiro *(Brazil) but the community
prefer call me "Razgriz"*(i really don't know why but perhaps...my ex-wife
can explain this thing one day if...).

My first contact with tux was in 1996 and i am a "pure"*(100% free software
user) user since 1997. But my contributions inside the world of free
software started only in the earlies of 2005 writing documentation about
computer graphics with free software at "vol"*(www.vivaolinux.com.br), some
months after my first doc, Davidson Paulo(the creator of the old project
"Guia Bozolinux" and now a Ambassador) invited me to write a book about the
"Gnu Image Manipulation Program*(Gimp), it was a huge and very ambitious
project but in the end with hard work yeah we did it! =] then since that
great moment my life was turned into a goal : the community must respect the
computer graphics made with free software but first the community must know
more about it ! Then i will continue doing documentation to teach all thing
that i know and what i will learn about it in the future.

Well, my history with Fedora starts in 2007, when i met Rodrigo Padula and
Cristiano Furtado*(jasoonfedora) and he convinced me to get fedora and try
it during the event, after some time inside the same event he invited me to
join the ambassadors team, but thanks to problems with time we lost contact.
A couple of months later he invited me to joying the artwork team of the
project "Revista Fedora Brazil" <http://www.projetofedora.org/Revista> and
now i feel that i can help more making my work in the magazine padronizing
the layout, creating new visual stuff for the project and helping with other
tasks and taking fedora to my classes in the Linux events that my default
mini-course "The Gimp for creative minds"  and other actions  where invited.

Well, here i am to help everyone and contribute with everything that i can,
i will do my best to the project as you all make every time.

just one last ask, if someone wanna know more about computergraphics, please
just send me an email and i will help you, and if you know portuguese and
think that stuff is usefull please translate this to other language =].
