Linux Format Interview

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Friday, December 2. 2005 in Personal

Previously I posted about how while at OSCON, I was interviewed by Paul Hudson from Linux Format UK. Well, the interview is out, in their Linux Format 74, Christmas/December issue. It's kind of embarrassing :-) First of all, I'm mentioned twice on the cover, then a small snapshot of me in the ToC and then a very nice article with large pictures. And then there's that "Lord Jim" phrase... And I'm thinking to myself, "Who the heck am I that I 'earned' this?" I just consider myself a guy who has some marginal talent and was lucky enough to be at the right places and the right times. There are other "unknown heroes" that I know quite well, who deserve just as much recognition, if not more. Then again, there are also lots of other people who, IMO, don't "deserve" as much as they get, so I guess it all evens out ;-) The interview itself is pretty good, though there are some typos and what appear to be mistakes in transcription. And my kids get a kick out of seeing their old man in a magazine. And my wife likes it when I call her "Lady Eileen." So even though I feel kind of "modest" about the whole thing, I'd be lying if I said it wasn't a totally cool blast. So it was a very surprising, but nice, early Christmas present. Thanks again to Paul and LF-UK!
