The Linux Foundation's "Community" Doesn't Look Very Community

"And check out the winning Fake Linus-- Matt Asay, who I would not characterize as any kind of great Linux advocate; his views on Linux and FOSS change as often as he publishes a new blog posting, which is several times a day. But at least Mr. Asay has some genuine FOSS creds. But not as many as the runner-up Jono Bacon.

"Dan Lyons as contestant is just plain baffling. You might recall this is the same Dan Lyons who used to publish reams of anti-Linux trolling and pro-SCO guff for Forbes magazine. So what happened, wasn't Rob Enderle available? Or Maureen O'Gara? With Ms.O'Gara you get a twofer-- anti-Linux troll and your token woman. I suppose it's a play on his schtick as Fake Steve Jobs, which is about as relevant to Linux and community-building as any random celebrity impersonator. A Fake Elvis would have been better, then we would have some cool music to listen to."
