Segment Two- Happy Birthday Linux Today

Tonight we will have a conversation with Dave Whitinger one of the original founders of Linux Today in a discussion about the roots of the Linux Communities oldest Newslink resource. If you do not know what Linux Today is, you certainly do not know enough about Linux to know about The Linux Show. So its sort of silly to talk about it here.

If we go way way back Dave did a stint at Red Hat. Dave worked as the manager of the technical support department of Red Hat Software back in 1997. After leaving Red Hat, he co-founded Linux Today with Dwight Johnson. In his days at Linux Today, Dave handled just about everything imaginable at Linux Today. In addition to posting stories, he handled all the web development, perl and PHP programming, system and network administration, and any technical challenges that came along. In late 99 LT was sold to the present owners, (presently known as Jupiter Media) and Dave went his merry way.

After Linux Today, Dave participated in the development of several well known ventures including Linsight, Atipa and Linux Weekly News. Dave is a very cool guy who has survived the ups and downs of the IT universe, and has both the scars and laurels to prove it. Dave is presently the founder of StandardOut, Inc a web site development and hosting service company. These days he does private consulting of Linux and PHP development.

Dave lives in South/Central Texas (Kerrville). At 27 years old (a mere child to have done all he has) he has been married for 7 years with 3 children, the latest one born 2 weeks ago at home! When not doing Linux stuff, he is usually digging around in his garden.

We have also invited a representative from the current staff of Linux Today to talk about the future of the portal. As of the time of this press release we still have no confirmation of who that representative might be.
