Birthdays and Blogging
ROSE Blog: Rikki's Open Source Exchange
On October 7, 1996 I gave birth to my one and only child. She turns 13 on Wednesday, so I'll officially be the mother of an official teenager. Yipes.
On March 5, 2009 I wrote about a fellow mom and blogger, Amber Graner, who was putting open source to the mom test. Since then, I've had the pleasure of meeting Amber in person and rooming with her at OSCON in July, admiring her enthusiasm as she helped organize Atlanta Linux Fest in September, and seeing her again a few days later when she attended Ohio Linux Fest. From testing open source to organizing and attending community events – that's a long way to come in a very short short time.
On May 28, 2009 Linux New Media announced the birth of a new magazine, Ubuntu User. I'm excited to have been a part of this magazine from the beginning and I look forward to doing my part to help it grow up, play well with others, mature, and go on to bigger and better things.
On October 5, 2009, exactly seven months after stumbling across the blog of a woman named Amber, I'm pleased to announce that she's started a new blog – You in Ubuntu – over on our steadily growing Ubuntu User site.
Please join me in welcoming Amber Graner as our newest Ubuntu User blogger.
(And please please please wish me luck on this whole "mom of a teenager" thing.)comments powered by Disqus
