I don't remember what I was doing back then... apart of my degree at the university that is.

But I can remember what I was blogging about. Not much, a trend that I am committed to change.

It's also super interesting to see some talks I gave in the Linux User Group in Elche, my home town, and other activities I was involved like the creation of my Linux and Open Source User Group in my old university. That were fun days.
