Being a very curious person and a teacher always in the pursue of innovative means to convey the message and to help my students develop their skills and evolve into better human beings has been the drive for my willingness to learn more and explore new ways of doing things.
Since a very early age, around my 12 years of age, when computers started to be a thing in Portugal, I had the luck of being given one by my grandfather. It opened the door for more exploration and new discoveries.
One area that I must confess I'm very fond of is social networking. Another one is communication. Well, social networking is a form of communication. I also like photography very much! And many other things... But, let's not allow this list to grow bigger...
So, my main use of the Internet revolves around communicating with others, whether it is through social networks or any tool that allows the communication with others and also sharing/viewing photography related sites.
I first heard about Markdown about two years ago when I started keeping a simple blog on Write.as, Escrito à máquina.... Since then, I've been trying to find a simple but good Markdown editor so that I can write my blog posts and some other texts using Markdown even when I'm not online and save them on my computer without having to go the copy>new document>paste>save route.
Even though I've been using a GNU/Linux system for about twenty years, I'm not am IT guy. I value good software, i. e., software that common people, people like me, people that are not IT gurus can use without having to take an IT degree! I also value Free software and I like to support those who dedicate their time and their expertise to the community whenever I can.
So, when I search for a programme, I look for simplicity, functionality, a programme or service that is reliable and gets the job done. Preferably, well done! And I prefer Open Source, Free software!
