Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Once again we're back for another week, which means it's another Wednesday where we feature someone in the Ubuntu community and ask them a few questions. This week we've got the pleasure of talking to Chris Johnston; Ubuntu Beginners Team and Classroom all star.

"Chris is an awesome dude who lives in Orlando, Florida. Outside of Ubuntu he fights fires and helps the injured as a Firefighter Paramedic (awesome in it's own right!) but because we're OMG! Ubuntu! and not OMG! Firefighter Paramedics! we're going to be focusing on his involvement in Ubuntu. =P

"Chris started using Ubuntu on his server back in 2007 with Ubuntu Server 7.10. After realising the awesomeness of Ubuntu, he began using it on his desktop and laptop in 2008 with the Hardy Heron. Last year he was awarded Ubuntu Membership status for his continued work in the Ubuntu Beginners Team, Ubuntu Classroom and his LoCo in Flordia.

"He's in IRC quite often and very approachable. Chris has done some fantastic work on ClassBot with Nathan Handler for the Ubuntu classroom, which we had a chance to try out in Ubuntu Manual's 48 hours of Learning event and also during Opportunistic Developer Week not that long ago."
