SSC Announces New Online Linux Publication: WorldWatch

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the popular online e-zine Linux Gazette and the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, is pleased to announce the launch of WorldWatch, a new online publication that explores how Linux and Open Source software are influencing social, economic and political changes worldwide.

WorldWatch offers readers a comprehensive, daily digest of articles from publications around the world about topics surrounding Linux and Open Source software. These topics are generally non-technical and offer big-picture perspectives regarding the implementation of the Linux operating system around the world and the resulting societal impacts.

Each WorldWatch topic consists of a several viewpoints combined with expert commentary, giving readers the opportunity to explore the nuances of developing trends and ideas. Furthermore, each topic contains a sophisticated feedback system, which allows the readership to interact and elaborate on particular issues.

"It is a fact that Linux is changing the world for the better," commented Willy Smith, editor in chief of WorldWatch, "and WorldWatch is the place to get the macro-view on this exciting development. For example, what does it mean if a country adopts Linux as its official operating system, or if Sony Corporation decides to contribute to Linux? At WorldWatch we're interested in how these phenomena contribute to real change for real people."

"Likewise," added Smith, "Linux is a truly global phenomenon with a diversity of developments occurring in different societies. Therefore we're eager to transcend national and cultural borders in our articles, viewpoints and analyses." Although this will be primarily an English language site, links to articles from every corner of the world and in non-English languages will be provided whenever possible. Machine translation links will also be present where feasible.

"WorldWatch also presents companies with a new and unique advertising opportunity," said Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales. "Due to the non-technical and broad aspects of WorldWatch, its readership is a unique blend of both applied IT professionals and managers. In addition, WorldWatch's global reach is unprecedented. The result is perhaps the most comprehensive Linux-related audience of any publication worldwide."

WorldWatch is available online at http://WorldWatch.LinuxGazette.com.

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
