Hi Luis,

I happened to notice you retweet a tweet today that said "A tech is neutral. It can’t be good or bad per se."[1] I know this perspective differs from my own, and I think a fair number of those in the Wikimedia movement—would you be willing to expound on your thoughts there?

There was a critical moment in my life when my father placed me, at 8 years old, in a BASIC programming course which I would practice on our x286 hidden away in a laundry room. My passion for technology started then, and has only grown since. I believe in technology as a key path to the furthering of humanity, of knowledge, of quality of life, and of our collective future. I also believe that this will only happen with the guidance and efforts of active and inclusive communities that shepherd said technology to positive outcomes.

Hello Luis,

Welcome at the foundation, it is great to see someone joining the board
having a large technical background.

BASIC and x286 are definitely familiar among staff members around your
age. If you ever join one of our tech meetings, I am sure you will feel
at home :]
