An expert is a person who avoids small error as he sweeps on to the grand fallacy. – Benjamin Stolberg
I have a great job with Red Hat, the world’s leading (and best) open source company. It’s full of people who are all smarter and faster than me, which makes it a constant challenge. Shh, that part’s just between you and me. Until they figure it out, I’m working as an engineering manager. Previously I was the Fedora Project Leader, so they haven’t caught on yet.
This should go without saying, but you can’t be too careful in this age of litigiousness. Nothing you find on this site represents the views or policies of any person or entity save myself. I occasionally write here about things going on in the Fedora Project but even then it’s often simply my personal opinion.
This blog has moderated comments. That’s not because I don’t like to hear opinions (or specifically dissenting ones). It’s because often I see comments coming in that have dubious, or worse, motives or value. Sometimes these comments are negative to the point of personally attacking other people, and I don’t want my blog to be a conduit for that sort of negativity.
I see this blog like an extension of my house. It’s my privately owned space, and I allow others in because I like to be hospitable. To torture the house analogy a bit, I love to have cookouts or parties and invite friends over. But the fact that I open my house for a party doesn’t mean I want one guest throwing punches at another, or taking a leak on my couch. If you want to behave like that, you’re welcome to host your own party in your own house, but you’re not welcome at mine.
Similarly, if you can’t be civil and constructive in your comments on my blog, I have no problem throwing them away.
