I taught two classes this week - "Introduction to UNIX". A good number (40) of people showed up and asked many questions. I covered the basics of the filesystem, directory navigation, and file maintenance; I was even able to explain permissions and the concept of indoes. I hope their heads weren't spinning by the time I was done.

I really enjoying teaching people the concepts of computing. Perhaps, this is why I'm great at creating documentation. I think the best way to encourage the open software movement is through education and positive influence. I certainly woudn't have known about Linux and the GNU movement if it hadn't been for that fateful day with my mentor.
