Full Name:
Murray J Brown ∯


Eclectic rebel, nighthawk, eco-geek, & software developer.

I have an off-beat, dark, wickedly irreverent and sarcastic sense of humour, with an especial fondness for puns.

I value integrity, honesty, intelligence, passion, compassion, fair play, tolerance, humour, adventure, an open mind, a stout heart, ... and a sense of purpose.

As an avid environmental and social justice advocate I'm interested in issues of ecological sustainability, climate change, peak resources, biodiversity, population growth, food & water security, global development, and post-growth economy.

I use free/libre software. My open source software experience began with Unix V6, the original non-commercial distribution by AT&T Bell Labs to academic institutions (circa '78). I'm a long-time Linux user: Yggdrasil was my first distro (circa '93); Debian for most of the past two decades.
