Personal site — Gamliel Fishkin
Hello, world! I am Gamliel Fishkin. Welcome to my personal site.
I was born 14 February 1973. Jew. My home city is Saint Petersburg, Russia.
Former poet, former cinema actor, a bit programmer (mostly web programmer; my favourite programming language is Perl, it is unlikely necessary to talk specially about knowledge of HTML and CSS), somewhat system administrator (sysadmin). I use GNU/Linux since 2009 and switched from Ubuntu to Debian. I am a supporter of free (as in ‘free speech’) software and esteem Richard Matthew Stallman (RMS).
I respect democracy (in the true meaning of this word, not in the U.S. American party meaning) and human rights; I dislike the present regime of Russia. I appreciate privacy, including privacy of correspondence, and I think Edward Snowden is a hero.
In different times of my life, I was interested on different topics: philosophy, history, psychology, biology, linguistics and many others. I understand three languages: Russian, Esperanto and somewhat English.
