Sold! (tentatively)

Site News

I guess tuxmachines.org has been sold for $1000. I know it's kinda low, but times have changed and the new owner plans to carry on the tuxmachines tradition.

I suppose that's all I should say for now until the deal is written in stone.

Thanks everyone for everything: all the visits, all the jokes, comments, and donations. But more on that later as well.

hi

what happened? is the new owner running the website now?

re: hi

Um, not quite yet, but the deal is done. The new owner has sent payment and I was gonna put up another post when it cleared and I handed over the reins. I expect payment to clear before the end of the week. At that time, I'll introduce him and hand it over. Until then, it's still me, Susan.

Oh, what happened? I just noticed that hits were falling, so, I updated the site and thought I'd work on it until the very end because I didn't want {new owner} to lose too many users. Besides, it's hard to adjust to not posting news. I keep seeing all these cool links...

thank you

You've done an excellent job with tuxmachines over the years, thank you for providing it to us all.

re:hi

I am starting today, but it's likely that news aggregation will properly start next week.

Open source software is for everyone – so where are the women?

We all know that there is a diversity problem in tech. The depressing stats from numerous reports and studies all point to stereotypes and bias hitting young girls’ perceptions of STEM negatively, with this sitting alongside poor retention figures and a lack of women at the board level. However, one particular branch of tech may be struggling in more when it comes to diversity and inclusion – the one branch, in fact, which has inclusiveness at the very core of its ethos. Read more

Google launches new site to showcase its open source projects and processes

Google is launching a new site today that brings all of the company’s open source projects under a single umbrella. The code of these projects will still live on GitHub and Google’s self-hosted git service, of course, with the new site functioning as a central directory for them. While this new project is obviously meant to showcase Google’s projects, the company says it also wants to use it to provide “a look under the hood” of how it “does” open source. Read more
