I am an independent thinker

My name is Avinash Meetoo and I live in Mauritius. When I was a kid, I was a computer geek and, when I grew up, I found it natural to study Computer Science (or, more precisely, Informatics.) After eight years of teaching at university level and despising what research has become, I decided to quit academic life and create my own company, Knowledge Seven, a Linux, Mobile and Web Agency in Mauritius.

I am a fan of Linux and Open Source Software and I founded the Linux User Group of Mauritius in 2000. My laptop runs Fedora Linux and it rocks. I also like Apple computers and I have a MacBook and an iMac. I love my Google Nexus 4 and my Nexus 7, beautiful Android devices.

I like to browse, blog, tweet and program. I also listen to music a lot and I compose too (I've released two albums...) I also like photography.

I am married to Christina and we have two kids: Anya and Kyan.
