Im a researcher in biology of reproduction. However, since 2003 i have been attracted by the open movement, learning what was behind linux, debian and slackware. In 2011, when i began my phd stuff like "where to deposit my congress poster, protocols, draft of rejected projects" become familiar and common discussion; also i begin to talk about how libraries could waste less money talking about open culture and how the "impact factor" was ruining the science. In 2014 tried to organize meetings but, i didnt have Uni support because "was not important for uni because no accreditation criteria was related to". I want to change that, educating and gathering motivated people in LATAM
