I have been a technology journalist and consultant for 30 years, covering
the Internet since March 1994, and the free software world since 1995.

The Greatest OS that (N)ever Was.
My most recent books are Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution, and Digital Code of Life: How Bioinformatics is Revolutionizing Science, Medicine and Business.
