What open code developers can teach PR

Is the real challenge for PR just "influence"? Or is it something bigger thatn that? If so, are there ways we can help PR move past its history of spinnage and into a future of usefulness? more>>

Picturing CES, continued

Linux wasn't everywhere at CES, but it was close, making it impossible to see Everything with Linux in it. But we tried. more>>

Picturing CES

So I've decided to make my next post a kind of running commentary, with lots of links and tags, in a Linux Journal Flickr set. Flickr runs on Linux, so that's one more excuse. more>>

The Tide Shifts at CES

So I'm sitting in the rather vast "press" corner of a CES keynote audience, waiting to see Paul Otellini, President & CEO of Intel, give a keynote. Two years ago I sat at an Otellini keynote here. As I reported in What's Intel up to with VIIV?, it was disappointing. Will this be different? Sure hope so. more>>

Hunting Linux at CES

So what's new with Linux at CES this year? That's our question. If you have the answers, let's have 'em. Because we'll be there on a Linux Hunt, just like we are every year. The difference this time is that we'd like to make this a Team Thing. more>>

Dependence vs. Independence. That's the choice.

Why Big Compute and Big Storage will meet Big Pipe at the Last Mile

And the parties in the best position to pioneer that frontier aren't in Seattle or Mountain view. They're in your home town. more>>

Let's keep photography and mapping mashable

Many people have suggested that I submit some of my many aerial photos to Google Earth. I'd love to do that, but after looking at the instructions for adding photos, especially the "acceptance policy", I have to wonder if it's worth the effort, or even the Right Thing To Do. more>>

Show us your Chumby

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.
