Hey folks,

I'm Mike *waves*. I work in Melbourne Australia, dividing my time between
Red Hat Asia Pacific (I'm an RHCX) and tech journalism (I've been a
professional writer for about four years now, having written on Linux for
PCAuthority, the Sydney Morning Herald, and Next before finding myself at
Australian Personal Computer).

Before I got poached by Red Hat, I wrote and trained my own Red Hat based
System Administration course. The course itself is Open Sourced (well,
FDLed)  and you can check out the last beta version (written for Red Hat
9) at I own
copyright to the course, and plunder some of the ideas (particularly
chapter 6) for other projects in future.

So yeah, being a geek, with communication skills, who uses a particular
Linux distribution and writes / trains on that distro professionally, the
Fedora docs project has seriously piqued my interest. There's very few
high quality, up to date, task based documentation projects for Linux and
I'd like to be a part of one

I'd like to volunteer to create tutorials on Web Serving (using Apache
HTTPd) and Mail Serving (using Postfix, Dovecot, and SpamAssassin)
initially, and could probably handle File Serving (with VSFTPd / NFS /
Samba), DHCP, and DNS too.
