Call for Authors
We're preparing for the "Community" issue of Linux Journal, which comes out this summer, and since the topic is community, we figured we should reach out to our community for articles and ideas!
Basically, we're looking for articles that showcase the Linux community. If that sounds vague, good. There are many aspects to our community, and we'd like to demonstrate how diverse our roles and involvement might be. Some off-the-cuff possible article topics we're looking for:
* Communication: This is vital for a community. How do you best communicate? Do you use specialty software? Wikis? Forums? VoIP? What interesting bit of communication mastery do you have that we might all benefit from hearing?
* LUGS: What does your LUG do that others might not? How can we all benefit from meatspace meetings? We don't want to read the minutes from your last quarterly meeting, but if your LUG or LUG-like organization is doing something unique, maybe other Linux Journal readers would like to hear about it.
* CRM: I'm not suggesting we treat each other like customers, but how do we keep track of each other in our community? Perhaps this is something only I struggle with, but maybe not. I'm too forgetful to be a good community member; how can forgetful people like myself still be a valuable member?
* The Kernel: Perhaps the pinnacle of our ability to work together in the Linux community. Linux IS the kernel. How has the community changed? Has it gotten better? Worse? I'm not a history fan myself, but I'd like to read about how the kernel and the kernel community has progressed over the years.
So there you go. That's just a few examples of what we're looking for, but please don't limit your ideas to those I've mentioned. We're looking for *community* input on our community issue. If you've ever wanted to write for Linux Journal, this might be the perfect opportunity! If you are interested in writing an article for this issue, please send a brief proposal explaining what you'd like to cover to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that the deadline for articles for this issue is May 2, 2011.
UPDATE: Bill pointed out in the comments that we didn't include a link to our standard author page. Please allow me to remedy that. ;o)

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
