Linux Journal Searches for the Ultimate Linux Fanatic
Linux Journal recently ran a web article that posed the question, "Are you a Linux waif?" (http://www.linuxjournal.com/article.php?sid=5868). This article struck close to home for many readers and became one of the most commented articles on the site, with people writing in to share their own Linux waif stories.
In the spirit of MTV's Fanatic we will be hosting a contest to discover the most dedicated Linux devotee. If you can prove to us that you are the superlative Linux zealot you will win complimentary passage on the Linux Lunacy 2002 Caribbean cruise (http://www.geekcruises.com/) and a chance to meet some of the most renowned people in the Linux and Open Source communities including Linus Torvalds, Ted Ts'o and Guido van Rossum. Ports of call include Jamaica, the Cayman Islands and Holland-America's private Caribbean island, Half Moon Cay.
To enter simply submit some kind of physical evidence of your Linux ardor to:
Linux Fanaticc/o Linux JournalPO Box 55549Seattle, WA 98155-0549
Submissions must be received by July 5, 2002. The grand prize winner and two runners-up will be announced in the September issue of Linux Journal and featured on the Linux Journal web site.
Example forms of submission are essay, video, photographs or any combination thereof. For instance, a short movie of you wearing your penguin pajamas to a five-star restaurant while trying to show the waiter how to hack the restaurant's point-of-sale system (running embedded Linux) to keep a more "accurate" account of tips would probably make you a major contender.

DevOps represents a profound change from the way most IT departments have traditionally worked: from siloed teams and high-anxiety releases to everyone collaborating on uneventful and more frequent releases of higher-quality code. It doesn't matter how large or small an organization is, or even whether it's historically slow moving or risk averse — there are ways to adopt DevOps sanely, and get measurable results in just weeks.
