Hello everyone, my name is Kyle Mann. I am a junior Electrical Engineering major from Tulsa. As aforementioned in class, my intellectual pastime is programming, digital design, and video games. I enjoy a good challenge and have several ongoing projects at home I work on in my spare time. For example, I am currently working on a custom peripheral for my PC to interface with some of my favorite games. One of the most important issues for me personally is the facilitation of open source software in our society and the work of Linus Torvalds. To me, it’s about freedom for the user as well as the benefit for society as a whole. Open source software promotes sharing and cooperation from individuals and organizations around the world for the good of everyone.
