OMG! Ubuntu!: The Interview!

Filed under
Interviews

OMG! Ubuntu! works hard at supporting not only the Ubuntu community but various community projects by exposing their reader base to all the new and exciting things that are happening around them. Want to know more about the personalities behind this growing phenomenon known as OMG! Ubuntu? I do!

Amber Graner: I believe I read that the site was started in August of 2009. What was the motivation for building the site? When did the site go from a community based Ubuntu News site to a corporate site for Ohso?

Joey-Elijah Sneddon: OMG! Ubuntu! started a bit before 2009 as a diary for me to keep a record of/track tips, tweaks, hacks and apps that I’d found so that I could come back to them at a later date. It’s been awesome to see the need for such hacks and tips diminish with each successive release of Ubuntu.

When people started commenting on posts and the RSS count started going upwards was when I realised: ‘Hold on, other folk are interested in this stuff too.’ And so OMG! Ubuntu! as most folk know it was born.
