The FOSS Force Video Interview
It would be difficult to find anyone who’s been hanging in FOSS circles for more than a week or two who isn’t familiar with FOSS media maven Matt Hartley. We thought we’d invite him along for a video interview to see what he’s really like.
Matt Hartley uses Linux, specifically Ubuntu, and writes for several online news outlets, including Datamation and a website he founded called Freedom Penguin, subtitled “Your Source for All Things Linux.” As Matt explains in the video, Freedom Penguin doesn’t compete with FOSS Force because the two sites have entirely different focuses. But that’s not why we wanted to talk with Matt. We wanted to ask (and did ask) how Linux and covering Linux have changed in the last decade. And he answered, most intelligently — and with a great sense of humor.
Robin “Roblimo” Miller is a freelance writer and former editor-in-chief at Open Source Technology Group, the company that owned SourceForge, freshmeat, Linux.com, NewsForge, ThinkGeek and Slashdot, and until recently served as a video editor at Slashdot. Now he’s mostly retired, but still works part-time as an editorial consultant for Grid Dynamics, and (obviously) writes for FOSS Force.
