SCALE 2011: PGP Keysigning, Balancing SCALE, Smile! You're on SCALE-TV!

Feb 13, 2011, 11:04 (0 Talkback[s])

"For the last few years SCALE has used audio-visual recordings to disseminate what goes on at SCALE. And every year that use has expanded. The success we've had has come from the efforts of Tom King, who now leads up SCALE's A/V Committee. SCALE interviewed Tom to find out what makes him tick. Here's that interview:

"Q: How did you get involved with Open Source Software and Linux?

"In 1999 I got a contract to build some Internet Weather Kiosks for NOAA and quickly realized that Windows was a disaster that kept crashing. So I looked into Linux then and discovered how rich and stable it was. The kiosks we built in 1999 and 2000 are *still* running.

"Since then I've been working with embedded Linux first with the nslu2 (aka SLUG) and now with webos-internals on Palm webOS and other "embedded linux" projects as a SysAdmin for the projects infrastructure.

"Q: How did you get involved with SCALE? How did you wind up volunteering for SCALE?"
