I am Ivan Frade, usually “frade” in different IRC networks. (not very original but convenient!). I am a GNOME fan, convinced that open source is the future, developer in the Tracker project and enthusiast about metadata and linking information to make the life of the user (and mine) easier on a computer or mobile device. For a detailed description of my professional life, here is my CV.

The only passion that competes with computers are books. Avid reader (mostly fiction) and book-aholic (if this word exists), i hope some day i’ll be able to open my small but very well selected bookstore in some very cultural and intellectual city.

In this blog i talk about personal stories, Tracker things and my pet-project Mussorgsky.
