I've been working with tech since the early days of the C64 and the BASIC programming language.
Over the years I've found that it's simply more fun and rewarding to help others with their technical problems than it is to charge people money for something I feel I should be doing out of the goodness of my heart. I've discovered that I get far more enjoyment from volunteering and helping people learn than most paid positions I have done in the last decade. For some reason, God has put it in my heart to use my skills and talents to help others to learn through the church and Jesus Christ. This feeling is synonymous with why I am so passionate about open source software and using it to teach and help others be productive without having to spend a lot of money on software or hardware that they don't truly need so those funds can be better spent in other areas.More
