20 Years of LWN

By corbet Back in mid-1997, your editor (Jonathan Corbet) and Liz Coolbaugh were
engaged in a long-running discussion on how to trade our nice, stable,
reliably paying jobs for a life of uncertainty, poverty, and
around-the-clock work. Not that we thought of it in those terms,
naturally. We eventually settled on joining Red Hat’s nascent “support
partner” program; while we were waiting for it to get started, we decided
to start a weekly newsletter as a side project — not big and
professional like the real press — to establish ourselves in the community.
Thus began an amazing journey that has just completed its 20th year.
