How to Help Your Business Become an AI Early Adopter


You know how you think of something important and then forget to write it down or type it into you PIM?

This seems to be my life lately. In the past two weeks, I have missed a dentist appointment (darn) and, much more importantly, missed noticing that last Tuesday was our sixth anniversary!

Of course, I may be forgiven, since we're still plugging away on our new 24/7 schedule. The volume of stories on Linux Today has grown by leaps and bounds, thanks to the contribution efforts of so many readers, and the recent influx of community articles that highlight the topics you feel strongly about.

If there is one trend in Linux media that we have seen changed over the years, it is the growth of personal blog sites--some of which provide news, tips, and information just as well as the commercial media sites. Blogging harkens back to the early days of the Web, when almost every site was a blog--we just didn't call them that.

We recognized blogs as good sources of information quite some time ago, and we will continue to link to them in our efforts to point to the most relavent Linux and Open Source information on the Web.

I, personally, would like to again extend my thanks to each and every writer and editor who has ever worked on Linux Today. Without their hard work and efforts, this vast repository of Linux history and evolution would not exist.

How vast? Try 55,871 atories (31,128 of them contributed by readers) and 287,338 talkbacks as of this writing. Sometime in the next 12 months, we'll pass 60,000 stories and very likely the 300,000 talkbacks milestones.

So, again, thank you for making Linux Today a part of your information experience. Six years later, and you've helped us still be #1.
