One of our editors, Don Parris asked : "I'm curious to know what brings you here? If you have recently made us your primary news site, perhaps you'd share your reasons?" Here's an interesting response.
Survey: What Brings You to LXer?
I don't really remember how I first find out about lxer...
That Ferris guy may have clued me in, or I might simply have stumbled across it.
Just plain don't remember.
Once I arrived, however, it was like old home week.
I was a relative latecomer to Linux Today. By the time I arrived, it
was a hustling, bustling place. Dave and Dwight had already sold it, or
were about to. Ferris was editing along with some other good folks. I
had the good fortune to meet most of them and share a drink or two.
Because of those guys, Times Square will always mean the late, lamented
Times Square microbrewery.
I left LT (as a community member) when Paul did, and had no real place
to go. I could go and harass the folks on the New York Times forums --
nothing quite so much fun as whacking hopeless liberals upside the head
-- but my Linux itch went unscratched.
Lxer -- a real Dave Whitinger production -- has changed that. Some old
faces hang around, and lots of interesting new ones. A number of
different perspectives, smart people, good writing -- lots of Linux
What's not to like?
Plus, I love watching that silly little visitor counter climb. 15,000 now? WooHoo!!!!
