Hi there,

I asked on IRC last night the best way to volunteer and introduce myself and was suggested to do it on the list so here goes:

I'm Bernard, a mobile telecoms engineer working on 3G packet core networks (the equipment needed to route your mobile IP data) for a large hardware vendor. 

I am a staunch supporter and advocate of privacy and your right to anonymity (or as much as we can have nowadays....) "on the Internet". I don't like interception technologies, but I understand the need for "traffic management" technology from a network administration point-of-view (they're both the same thing though, right?) 

I'm a long time user and advocate of Tor, and now also OrWeb.

I've recently begun a masters in human computer interaction ("user experience" / usability / interaction design) as I am interested in a possible career change in the next few years.

As part of my learning of all things UX, I have been looking for projects I could get involved in which combine my current knowledge, and the knowledge I want to acquire.

I found the Tor volunteer page, and was very happy to find that you guys need help in user interface and usability areas, particularly the "Build a better user interface for Orbot" (which I think is pretty bloody good so far),  "Usability testing of Tor" and others.

I am happy to run, be involved in, assist, and carry out some testing to making Tor projects more usable, and where possible also do more "heavy technology" stuff.

So, thats me. I'd like to hear where I can be involved.
