About me

I am a programmer, and I'm passionate about developing Free Software. “Free software” means software that respects users' freedom and community. I believe users should have the freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. I think when users don't control the program, the program controls the users. The developer manages the program, and through it controls the users. A nonfree or “proprietary” program is, therefore, an instrument of unjust power. During high school, I published an article on open source and free software philosophy in Khabar newspaper Shiraz, Iran which you can find here (in Persian).

I enjoy cycling too. Once, Farshad and I decided to do something special; we arranged 100 miles road bike ride to the Tomb of Cyrus the Great, Pasargad, Iran. We started cycling on 8/12/2010 Tuesday at 4:00 AM, and it took almost 10 hours. It was tough, but it was worth it!

I am also desperate for adrenaline!
