I support projects that drive innovation, and technology that is enjoyable, easy and adaptable. I enjoy working on software that manifests a new approach, demonstrates a fine solution, or is an interesting experiment.

I am an adherent of Cognitive Linguistics. Simply speaking of its application, from wording you can get pretty much anything about the speaker: their mood, appearance, background, attitude on the subject matter and, on certain conditions, even to what side from the wall they hang toilet paper. Read the full article in Wikipedia.

Other activities outside Fedora

I've been translating and proof-reading within the GNOME Project and as a member of the Russian Ubuntu Translators team. I have mostly been interested in Banshee and Deluge, two great products for GNU/Linux, OS X and Windows.

I translate for Android. The vast acceptance of the BitTorrent client tTorrent among Russian users is due to its Russian translation.
