All- some quick comments, stepped out of CEO role at
Linuxcare in October. One
of Linuxcare's founding
principals was "Recruit top people and if that person
happens to do your own job better, then replace yourself."
Such is the case with Avery Lyford, we went out looking for
the best product marketing/business building guy available
and wound up with an awesome candidate for the CEO
position. Like so many other good things in life, this one
came along while we were looking for something else. The
new management team is smart, the technical staff is
seasoned- it's a good legacy to leave behind. I will
remain an enthusiastic
member of the Linuxcare Board of Directors and continue
to run the Bay Area Linux Users Group (BALUG). If you
wish to contact me, my email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org - I'd love to hear about what you're up
to and of course, job offers... :)
Look for good swag at BALUG this month, books from TurboLinux and other interesting items. Check out http://www.balug.org for this months meeting details.
I'll be headed to Linuxworld in NYC (from SFO) via. Amtrak at the end of the month. Always wanted to do a cross country ride as a paying passenger. If you'd like to join me along the way, I'll be on Amtrak Train #6 departing Emeryville on Jan 26th. If you see someone under 50, with a PDA in glasses - that's me. I'll be travelling with a 802.11 network (on the train) connected to the net via. multiple CDPD modems running multilink PPP. Yeah!
