Fernando Cassia es un nerd, un fanático de las computadoras, un Gaucho Nerd en las Pampas de Sudamérica. Vive en Buenos Aires, Argentina, y sus divagues se pueden leer en las páginas electrónicas del medio inglés The Inquirer y ocasionalmente en otras, siempre con su visión progresista y humana del mundo.
I started playing with computers at around age 10. But I really got hooked later, at the time of 1200 bps modems, Fidonet-style BBS networks, and x.25 packet switched connections. I live down in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and work writing assorted babbling for the UK based IT news site The Inquirer (theinquirer.net) I'm a fan of cross-plaform Java applications, PalmOS, and enjoy using and exploring linux distros. While I can dabble in php3, rexx, and "hello, world" kind of java development, I lack the focus and attention span for elaborate coding, that's why my hobby programming projects never got past a version 0.2. Writing and, perhaps, taking pictures, is what I really enjoy in life, next to good music and cinema. Microsoft, telco monopolies and perhaps laizes-faire capitalism advocates are my pet peeves. I joined the EFF back in 1995 and I'm currently a member of the Free Software Foundation. Mozilla and StarOffice / OpenOffice are my main software darlings.
