2010 - A Linux Odyssey.
Here at Linux Journal, 2010 has been designated a Linux Odyssey. I was fortunate enough to be asked to lead the charge as the Guest Editor for the January issue where we took a small departure from our normal January focus and instead looked at Amateur Radio and Linux. February, we are going to dive into Desktops (and I am sure by the time you read this, Shawn and Kyle will have posted their review of the February issue). Editor's note: the podcast David speaks of will be live and on the site late morning of Dec 31, stay tuned!
My Linux Odyssey for 2010 is going to be two pronged. One, as the control op here at the Linux Journal's Virtual Ham Shack, I am going to start the process of converting my few Amateur Radio programs to Linux. One of the first programs I want to dive into is Xastir, the APRS program. My training is as a geographer, with a focus on cartography, so anything maps is right up my alley and I look forward to leveraging the abilities and capabilities of Xastir. Second, I am going to continue my focus on Linux, particularly in business, as we move through the year in my occasional posting in this space.
Now that does not mean I will not comment on things that catch my interest. For example, over the next few days, now that I have some breathing space, I want to look at the Australian censorship bill that has been passed, forcing ISPs to block sites. This is not a new topic for me, or the Australians, but I want to do a little more research and tie in a few other things that seem connected.
What are you going to do in 2010. Do not think of this as a resolution. We all know how little weight they carry. Think of it as a personal goal of accomplishment.
Happy 2010 everyone. Let the journey begin!
