Why I switched from Architecture to Free Software

,----[ Quote ]
| When I was finishing high school I knew I was going to continue my academic
| life studying architecture. I took special art classes to get prepaired to
| study one of the fine arts I always loved, and so I did, I entered the
| architectural school at my hometown in the Canary Islands.

| Few times every century a social changing movement arises, right now Free
| Software is defining our freedom, rights, and how we live in a rapidly
| switching from analog to digital world. Free Software is the contemporary
| Bauhaus. I am very proud and feel very lucky, of being part of it.
