Freedom-focused hacker. I love everything about free software, and spend much time contributing to it myself. I occasionally write articles to help other people getting started with free software, and show the issues with proprietary software. Active on IRC to help people out, and to learn about new things myself as well. Currently I have made over 10 modules for Perl 6, which are all available on CPAN.
If you think what I'm doing is awesome, and want to support me, you can do so through donations. More information about how to donate and what I do with the donations I receive can be found on the donate page.
My public PGP key is available on on pgp.mit.edu. The fingerprint

I do not read my mailboxes very often, so please do not expect a timely response. If you require a response as soon as possible, please find me on IRC instead.
I am mainly active as
tyil on Freenode. Other networks I frequent
are DareNET and Rizon, using the same nick,
use OTR for private messages on IRC, so be sure you use this if you want to
discuss something in private.
I am available via XMPP/Jabber on
firstname.lastname@example.org. Like IRC,
be sure to have OTR enabled if you wish to talk to me. Since my XMPP chats go
BitlBee, the response time is about the same as via IRC.
