Daniel Johnson


Both introvert, and extrovert.

I spend a lot of time at coffee shops staring at my computer screen trying to learn new things, and I spend much of the rest of my time getting to know people.

At the moment I am particularly interested in how to make the many benefits of Linux based server technology accessible to small businesses, non profits, and even home users who wouldn’t normally be able to afford technology experts to set things up for them.

I can also be found riding a bike all over the streets of Portland, or even delivering pastries to a Willamette river bridge so hungry bike commuters can build community on their way to work.

* Network booting helps you be lazy

Network booting can save you more time in the first month than it took you to set it up. See a live demo of network booting in action, and learn about the software stack you need to get started.
