Less blogging about Ubuntu - (Funny) Howto

Filed under
Web

There’s blogging nowadays and everyone has to be writing stuff on the web all the time about what they have been doing. Sometimes even to the cost of not actually doing it properly. I try not to blog about anything I am not an expert on, but many people seem to be desperate about writing a post and having it linked to newsfeeds aggregators, to the point that they don’t care if they are publishing, well, bullshit.

In the free sofware community, but probably everywhere, this new trend is somewhat harmful, because people browse the web looking to fix problems or to learn about and improve their open source OS and they need to find sound technical information.

I am not sure yet if skilled developers waste too much of their time on blogging, instead that coding, even if this thought crosses my mind sometimes when reading Planet Gnome. What I am sure about is that there is a whole bunch of newbies out there writing poor howtos, pretending to save the day of a fellow GNU/Linux user, but not teaching him any real knowledge.

I want to share a couple of examples
