"Walt Whitman said that if you enjoy your work, you'll never
work a day in your life. If what Walt says is true, I haven't been
working for a while now. I enjoy my work. I'm a writer and an
editor, and I get to work in the most exciting corner of the
computer industry. Every day, I wake up, wondering what cool things
the Linux.com volunteer writers have put together for me to enjoy.
Okay, I'm probably overstating a little bit here; they're writing
for you, the reader, not Emmett the Editor. Still, I get a lot of
satisfaction out of being on the bleeding edge of the industry
"When I was in Canada for the Ottawa Linux Symposium, I had the
opportunity to hang out with my friend San. When the sun goes down,
San is an incredible trance DJ. During the day, he's an engineer
for VA Linux working on high-end server solutions. San loves his
work. At one point, I asked, "San, do you ever wake up in the
morning and think that you're the luckiest guy in the world,
getting paid to do something you'd do for free?" "Every day," San
said. I find that this attitude is held in almost every corner of
the Linux industry."
