New monthly column. New blog.

Today, I start with yet another online presence. I have a new blog over at, a companion site to the new Ubuntu User magazine by the fine people who bring you the slick, shiny LinuxPro Magazine. The second issue of the quarterly Ubuntu User magazine, in which another new column of mine appears, is on store shelves now. I’m very excited about this new blog, the Ubuntu User column, and I’m totally thrilled about my new monthly column which will be appearing in the pages of LinuxPro Magazine starting with the December issue.

Since this is day one of the new blog (which I call "Orbiting Planet *buntu*), here’s an intro. To read the rest, click the Read More link at the end of this teaser. The first post is titled "U Done Me Right. U Done Me Wrong." Enjoy!

Ah, the first post of a new blog. It’s opportunity. It’s possibilities. It’s the chance to create something new and exciting, or to totally fall flat on your face. I love the pressure. As I look around at this new place, I think I’m going to like it here. I’m excited by the shiny new glossy magazine that is Ubuntu User and I know you will be too.

So, what shall I talk about? Apparently, I can talk about pretty much anything. Given that this is post number one, I’m going to start with a quick overview of what you can expect here. I’ve been writing about, talking about, getting exciting about ( and a whole bunch more abouts) Linux, including other free and open source software offerings (aka FOSS) for years. I’ve given talks on Linux, done Linux training, spoken at Linux User Groups, done radio interviews and shows about Linux and FOSS, and I’ve done a number of television appearances talking about, uh huh, Linux and FOSS. You might say I’m a little passionate about it. What’s more, I believe that Linux and FOSS are good for the world.
