I have a blog, where I have written extensively about a variety of (mostly) computing-related topics, particularly Linux, open source, operating systems, cloud computing, and platform strategy.
These posts are a few years old now, but they’re still highly relevant (and still nicely summarize my worldview):
Do operating systems still matter?
What will be the cloud equivalent of the Linux distro?
How package management changed everything
Babies, bath water and open platforms
“Small pieces loosely joined” and Web 2.0
Early in my career, I wrote a manifesto. Not everyone can say that.
In August 2015, I published a retrospective called How I came to find Linux that describes, well, how I came to find Linux.
