  2. I stumbled across your blog while looking for IT professionals with an interest in open source and Linux. I don’t know if you have seen Computerworld UK and its new Open Source Zone.

    If not, please take a look. I think we have got it off to a good start but we want to develop it with end user stories, general open source news and blogs.

    We have got Glyn Moody blogging for us. He is a longstanding commentator on the open source scene. You may have read his Rebel Code book on the birth of Linux, which came out a few years ago.

    I'm also musing on developing an IT in education site. Don't know what you'd htink of that.

    Any ideas gratefully received.
