New way in the same stuff
Well I came to work early and finished my day assignations yesterday. So is time for a little post.
As many of my friends know. I was very involved in Free Software Community Activities. But the last months I simply didn’t have the enough free time to help the Free Software community in Guatemala. I was helping in a middle-active way. But all the things have a beginning and end. And my end is right here .
Clear and without preludes actually I have a personal conflict with some members of the community (don’t ask for details I won’t give you that) and no one is more important than other in the community.
Everybody is replaceable and fortunately there are many new members . Far from it, I’m sure of one thing: “the community work has to remain intact”. So I took a difficult decision: keep my personal problems as “personal” and let the community continues strong and working .
One thing that I learned in the communities is “work with people is hard, very hard”. Sure you are in a community because you share one thing with the people. “Free Software Advocacy”. Maybe for freedom, maybe because they don’t have friends, maybe for money. But participate in a Free Software Comunity was one of the greatest experiences in my life. And I really like the “boom” of the Free Software in Guatemala.
As an Spanish quote says “the best support is not be in the way”. So I’ll continue suporting Free Software in another ways. In my job, with code, with tech support on IRC (in selected channels of course). But with the same objective: “For the Software and Knowledge Freedom”. Maybe in this new era I’ll help more with code. I have various rusty project asking for “love and attention” xD. Good luck to all my community friends and keep the hard work.
BTW this post is because everybody ask me the same question: “why?”. And I really hate talk about the same topic two or three times. So this is my response
PD I finished this post two days later
