Hi all,

it's about time to introduce myself too: My name is Myriam Schweingruber, I'm 
from Switzerland and 47. Still working as a chemist (since 25 years) I have 
always been interested in computers and discovered Free Software under the 
shape of RedHat GNU/Linux 7 years ago. Since about 5 years my computers run 
with Linux exclusively, Debian Sarge on the server and Ubuntu, Kubuntu, 
Edubuntu and/or Xubuntu in Dapper flavor on my laptop, depending my daily 
mood. Actual mood set to Gnome with a lot of KDE apps running on top :-)

I also work as a Free Software advocate/evangelist/passionaria (choose what 
you prefer) for the FSF Europe since about 4 years in my spare time and just 
come back from the Ubuntu Developer Summit in Paris where I wanted to make my 
mind up and eventually gave a hand in a few specs. We were not many women, 6 
to be precise: Belinda Lopez (aka ubuntugirl aka dinda), Claire Newman from 
Ubuntu who coordinated the whole bunch of geeks, Jane Silver who actually 
runs Ubuntu, Ellen Reitmayr from KDE/OpenUsability.org, Adriane Knopper who 
actively contributes with her husband Klaus (yes, the Knoppix guy) to 
accessibility and me. I still have a few blog snippets to post since Paris 
and you can read them here: http://www.fsfe.org/en/fellows/myriam/weblog

I also sometimes hang around on IRC: myriams on irc.freenode.net, mainly in
#ubuntu-women, #edubuntu, #ubuntu-bugs, etc.

Hope to meet you there !
