IN 1997, Niyam delivered his first talk on GnuLinux, at an Apple
conference in Bangalore. Actively using GnuLinux since 2000, he delights
in its ethics and vision, more than just its technology. For the moment,
GnuLinux is his way of life.
Thousands and thousands of people have
attended his seminars and workshops on GnuLinux. Hundreds of thousands
have read his articles, a few even publish and distribute his copylefted
articles further. His articles appear, often happily without his
knowledge, in several countries across the world, even in Pakistan's
press. Dozens of key clients, colleagues, and friends have migrated with
The Government of India, UNDP, and other international
organizations, often invite him to consultations. He regularly conducts
several workshops on graphic design, digital sound, digital video, and
more, based around GnuLinux tools. Interviews of him have been broadcast
on several national TV channels, and leading newspapers and magazines
often quote him. He is also actively involved in a few software projects
in various capacities.
Niyam's focus on education is ushering in a quiet
yet dramatic revolution in Indian academia with respect to GnuLinux.
