Just posted this on Slashdot...
I'm pleased to see all the positive comments about
LWN. It's also been my favorite Linux site, going back to 1998. In fact, LWN broke the news about Zope going open source, one hour after I announced it at a Python conference. We weren't ready for the exposure they provided, so we had to haul *ss to catch up. :^)
What isn't discussed here is the personal side.
I think Liz, Jon, and Dennis are
some of the most honorable, decent people in the
world of Linux. They've all given a lot to the
community, even beyond LWN.
Lots of others shoved
wads of cash in their pockets when the bubble
inflated. LWN held out until an offer with
integrity showed up. Alas, it turned out to be
a moral but non-lucrative choice.
To Liz and Jon and Dennis: kudos for being Good
People. You've already created a warm legacy,
something not enough people in the community can
to post comments)
