Another LinuxWorld Resignation
Monday, May 16 2005 @ 02:00 PM EDT

Martin Brown, formerly at LinuxWorld explains his reasons for resigning on his blog. I believe it's worth noting, because we have all for a long time wondered about all the anti-Linux content in LinuxWorld, and now he gives us the explanation. It's good to know that the editors of the online LinuxWorld were not the ones doing it, and the stench in the air from it should not follow them. Here's the deal on content, as he explains it:

We have no control over the website; even the new one, which went live recently, is completely out of our control. Many people donít understand how this can be the case - even with the recent issues, many assume we have full and absolute control over content on the website. This simply wasnít the case. Instead the LinuxWorld.com website is an automatic amalgam of articles and posts from across Sys-Con that may, or may not, be Linux related. Our only direct way into providing content for our site was through our also recently enabled blogs (http://mc.linuxworld.com). We have no control over the articles automatically added and syndicated on the site. The first time we see them is the first time you see them. Yes, itís odd. No, we didnít like it. Yes, Iíve said that before.

Editors with no control. That's a new concept in journalism. So Sys-Con is blazing new trails in more than one way. Well. It's all downhill. But in more than one way. There is a great deal more, which you can read on his blog.

Now we know the rest of the story.
