> Hi !
> My name is Mathieu Bridon, known online as bochecha.
> I discovered Linux at school 4 years ago and was really annoyed by the
> fact that I had to use it when it seemed totally broken.
> Two and a half years ago, out of curiosity, I decided to try it again. I
> spent one week with Ubuntu, breaking it every time I was trying to do
> something with it, reinstalling it twice a day. :)
> Then someone made me discover Fedora and had the patience to explain me
> the basics so that I could at least use it. I then discover the french
> Fedora community, in which I instantly felt at home and quickly made
> some friends.
> What kept me in Fedora all this time and will probably keep me ad vitam
> aeternam is its strong ethics (only open source, always upstream,
> etc...).
> After being involved in the french community by doing support on the
> forum and IRC, I decided it was time for me to start contributing
> directly to the Fedora project. My first RPM just landed in
> updates-testing and I might join the translation team if I ever find the
> time for it.
> I also co-initiated with Mohamed Elmorabity the Fedora | Paris project.
> What we do is gather the Fedoristas who live in Paris and have diner
> every 2 weeks, and more if the night goes on.
> Of course, we all already know each other on IRC or on the forums, so
> those meetings are more a way to know the non-geek-side of each other,
> and build friendship inside our community.
> Fedora | Paris organized the Saturday night party this week end before
> the Sunday Install Party, so that people who don't live in Paris and
> were coming in Paris for the IP would receive a warm welcome.
> As an Ambassador, I'll try to go on promoting Fedora everywhere I can,
> starting with the IT company where I work which is too Debian / Ubuntu
> oriented. I'd like to have some co-workers contributing to Fedora, as
> they already contribute to other FOSS projects.
> Looking forward to working with you, almighty Fedora Ambassadors of the
> world. :)

Welcome to the Club, Mathieu.

I hope the arm twisting wasn't too painful this weekend ;)
