Additional MaterialSince I agree with the ideas behind
the free software movement, you'll find most of the teaching
material I've ever written available for download under the

Personal Interests (intereses personales)The concept of
free software is quite
impressive. Even if you haven't heard about it, chances are you
do have one or more pieces of free software running on your
computer. For instance, the operating system GNU/Linux is composed of free software,
the web browser Firefox is free
software, or even the web server giving you access to this
document (called Apache) is
free software. Free software is not only free as in free beer (which is a nice
addition), but it is also free as in free speech. Free software allows me
as a user to not give up my own freedom, which in the end, is
So, after reading a bit on the net about free software you think
you might give it a try.... excelent! I invite you to take the
next step, start replacing those non-free pieces of software in
your computer with free software. The are many lists of
instant replacements for the usual applications. Some people
complain about having several alterntives for replacing a single
non-free program, but recall that free software is about
free-ness, so not even that is impossed upon you! Ask around, somebody will gladly
lend you a hand or provide you with a copy of that particular
piece of software you're needing (now that he/she is free to do that). See how all the
pieces fall into place?
On other topic (not entirely unrelated), my wife and I are
vegans. Wonder what that is, hey? Well, you can check wikipedia to get the
standard encyclopedic answer, but browsing the web of the
vegetarian union might provide a
broader background as to why people do willingly stop eating meat
and other animal derived products. If you're interested in this
subject, you can start by checking this
flyier from vegan outreach (available in Spanish
Other Stuff (otros)The projects I'm working on on my
spare time (which is, unfortunately, not much!):
Another project I also work on my spare time, this one not
related with computers:
- DLP - An Integrated Development
Environment for Defeasible Logic Programming.
- PubList - A little script for
automating the generation of a list of publications.
The man who started it all, Richard M. Stallman,
speaks about why he uses free software, and more importantly why
you should too in this speech
