Brave New World
MIRANDA O, wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in't! William Shakespeare, The Tempest, Act 5, Scene 1
Welcome to the brave new world of Linux Gazette.
Where did it begin? Probably long ago. But let’s say 16 May 2011. Ben wrote to TAG:
After a number of years of running LG, I've reached a stopping point: I can't continue producing it, for a variety of interconnected reasons. In short, the group of people currently involved in making LG happen has become so small that almost the entire thing has fallen on me - and the technical side of producing it is so complicated that my current level of business and other life involvement does not leave me with enough spare time to do it. As a result, there was no LG issue for this month - and despite giving it my best shot over the past two weeks, I have still not managed to release one.
Ben’s email elicited over 100 responses.
Much has happened in the intervening months. Many people were reluctant to let Linux Gazette fade away. What you see today is the upshot: a new look Linux Gazette, produced through the cooperation of a new team and a technology which may not be all that new but is certainly different.
