8 Hey everyone, my name is Jonathan Jackson and I'm a computer programmer based out of Ocala, Florida. I stumbled into software a few years ago after studying Political Science at the University of Florida. After graduation, I landed a job working as an IT man in a small medical billing business. It was there that I found Ruby and fell in love with its syntax and power. I've since expanded my focus to include other programming languages, but I'll always have a soft spot for Ruby.

10 While I am really passionate about programming, it's the communities that surround it that really let me know I was in the right field. I know it's not all puppy dogs and rainbows, but I've seen people slave for hours on projects that will not earn them a dime, and sit in an IRC channel until four AM trying to answer some rookie's question. I've been the reader of your blogs and tweets. I've used your libraries. I've benefited from your labor.
