Title: Let me introduce myself
Post by: feeef on December 22, 2014, 07:24:15 PM

My name is François, I am french, I live near Bordeaux in the south west of France. I am currently a freelance film director (and animator) mostly working for an independent british film company called Free Seed Films.

I used to be a mac fan at the time of 68k and PowerPC macs. I now feel pretty much betrayed by the more and more obvious planned obsolescence based business model of this company. Though, I'm still very impressed by their designers and their visual marketing. They still do a very good work in that regard.

Free software is the way I want to go now and a Gnu/Linux PowerPC is the reunion of both things I love! :)

I am very happy to be part of this project, in the limit of my availability (I have 2 young kids and free time is rare for me at the moment). I can do visual work for promoting the project or for the website.

Please, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question or suggestion!

My name is Jairo, I'm from Penápolis, São Paulo, Brazil. I work as a video editor in a little local cable TV channel.

I'm an enthusiast of Alternative Hardwares (PowerPC, MIPS, SPARC WLIW, etc...), just had an iBook Clamshell with Japanese keyboard layout, that is now with my godmother. My dream, to have a good PowerPC hardware, that supports AmigaOS/MorphOS, and who knows?... To be a reseller of such equipment.

I will help with anything within my capabilities, once that I am not an IT expert or such a thing. I have some good idea snaps and will spread the word across Brazilian groups in social networks.
