Jack-Benny Persson

Jack-Benny Persson discovered Linux and the internet way back in 1997, and has since been obsessed by it. Linux and networking have been both his hobby, his field of study, and also his career. He runs a small business in Sweden where he does everything from consulting work to writing books, as long as it has to do with Linux, programming, networking, or electronics. He also has a keen interest in communication and is a HAM radio operator. He is truly a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to technology. One of his (many) dream professions is to become a teacher, though he really likes teaching technology.
