Andrew Craucamp

Systems architect and software developer

Systems Architect

I'm a systems architect and software developer by profession. During my career i've focussed on developing modular system frameworks for both desktop and web platforms. I've worked in the financial, medical, motor and freight industries. I now work for Involgo, a company that builds software for small businesses.

Ubuntu Advocate

I actively advocate open source software and i'm part of the wider Ubuntu community. Although Ubuntu is not without it's flaws it has grown into the best desktop operating system available and i have full confidence in their ability to disrupt the mobile industry.

Virtual Reality Enthusiast

I've been a stereoscopic 3D hobbyist since i was 11 and i believe that consumer accessible virtual reality systems like the HTC Vive and Steam VR are going to revolutionise media consumption.

Communist

I'm aware of the stigma around communism but it needs to be better understood by all parties. Communism isn't something that is implemented, it's something to be achieved. In order to achieve communism three societal conditions need to be met; there must be no aristocracy or poverty, there must be transparent, decentralised democratic governance and there must be universal access to basic necessities without obligation.

Atheist

Science is my religion and the singularity is my motivation. Communal and environmental consciousness are necessary for the survival and progress of our species.

Bitcoin Investor

I buy and sell Bitcoin as a hobby and i strongly believe that a decentralised currency is the democratisation of the monetary system.

PC Gamer

I own a powerful Steam Machine ready for Virtual Reality. My SteamID is OpenTangent.

Vegan

I live on a plant-based diet, i very rarely consume animal products but when i do i am cognisant of how it ended up on my plate and why eating those products regularly is detrimental both to my health and to the environment.

Human Being

I accept both the strengths and weaknesses of my character and i acknowledge that every human being is a unique set of characteristics. No human being is independent of others, we are products of our social environments. Furthermore, when i refer to myself, i always use a lower-case "i" because i am not more important than you or them or us.
