Where have we been?

by

It seems we’ve been a bit out of touch. Rather than bore you with excuses, let’s cut to the chase. Over the last year, we’ve slowed down—and then stopped altogether—publishing articles in Red Hat Magazine. And some of you have been contacting us to ask why.

There’s really a couple of reasons.

First of all, we’ve been running Red Hat Magazine a long time—under the RHM banner since November 2004. Before that we were a monthly newsletter called Under the Brim.

Point is, things change. We were once a text-only, link-heavy monthly email. Back then, we didn’t write very much original content—well, except for Shadowman. He (and his third-person narrative) have been around a while. He’s seen us publish through email, on the web—we even tried an issue in print. In the last few years, we dipped our toes into the online daily news space with both excitement and apprehension. We launched videos. We recorded podcasts. Some stuff we kept; some stuff we moved aside.

And now it’s time for another change.

We’re sorry we didn’t get around to telling you earlier. But, truth is, we weren’t quite sure what we were doing next. Some planets had to align. Some realities had to be faced. And there’s still a lot of work to be done. But we didn’t want to leave you hanging any longer.

We haven’t forgotten you. We’ve been hard at work figuring out just where we go from here. The content we have is too good to leave languishing in a corner. Our writers are too talented to not see the light of day. We’re working on delivering the open source message in a different way. There will be more info soon, and you’ll be among the first to know.

In the meantime, enjoy our archives. We’ll keep them here for now. Watch the email list for announcements. It’s been a long, strange, and wonderful trip. And it’s not over yet.
