Interview with Michael Robertson, SIPphone

Filed under
Interviews

My interview this morning is with Michael Robertson, founder of MP3.com, Linspire, and now a new startup, SIPphone (www.sipphone.com). I thought it would be interesting to conduct the interview via Michael's own software, so I called him up using the SIPphone software and a voice over IP connection to ask him a bit about the idea behind SIPphone, and what he has been up to lately. The call quality was great, and I also got his insights into what makes a good entrepreneur, and some great advice for startups.

Marcel's Linux App of the Month : kdissert

Filed under
Linux

Even after writing a half dozen books and several hundred articles, I still find it difficult to know where to start when I'm looking at a new project. Getting the germ of whatever ideas I might have down into something that starts to look and sound intelligent is anything but second nature. Somewhere in my head, there's a jumble of fleeting thoughts, ideas, and concepts, running every which way with no map for me to follow other than some casual mental digging here and there. If you find yourself in the same kind of cerebral jungle, what you and I really need is a mind map.

When I'm trying to learn how to administer Linux, nothing is more frustrating than to pick up a book that's advertised as "a complete guide", only to discover that either there are holes in the information base or that each subject is treated far too lightly to really learn anything.
