"Android meisje" het verhaal achter de tattoo

Gister plaatste ik dit verhaal hier. Ik ben haar het  "Android meisje" gaan noemen. Ik was erg benieuwd naar het verhaal achter de tattoo, en haar beweegreden. Ik besloot met haar te gaan mailen en haar om het verhaal te vragen. Vandaag heb ik dan "het" verhaal van haar ontvangen en ik mag het met jullie delen!

Ik moet zeggen het is een simpel verhaal is maar wel met een kern die veel over Natalie "Kommodore" Thompson zegt. Ze is 23 jaar oud en woont in Texas, USA.

Ik mag haar wel, vooral haar overtuiging over vrijheid, een "Android meisje" naar mijn hart!

Hier haar verhaal...

"Omg, Martijn I feel bad.

My inbox has been SO CLUTTERED since all this android tattoo business!  I've even been missing some pretty important personal emails!  Ha ha

I should have gotten back to you sooner, but here's the story:

I ordered the G1 on September 28th of last year, which was about 1 or 2 days after it was released for pre-sale. I was totally excited about the concept of a Google phone, seeing as how I pretty much live on Google products. At first, I was a little disappointed with the hardware, but there was just something about the operating system that I didn't want to let go of. A few months went by, and I really started to learn more about the nature of Android.  I met tons of people who felt the same way I did.  Android and open source adhere to my philosophy on technology. That it should enable the free exchange of information, ideas, applications, software and other technologies that make our lives easier. I think that it is terribly counterproductive and in contrast to the nature of technology to copyright and protect certain technologies as a means to protect income. So one day, I just woke up and decided that I'd like a new tattoo, and I thought that I'd like to show some respect for the first mobile operating system to embrace the same theory as I do, being as I am a huge mobile geek. and that's pretty much how little android ended up on my arm :) "
