(¶) Greetings from Heather Stern

Hello everyone -- welcome, once again, to the world of The Answer Gang.

There's a world of people out here doing good things. As my cover art raises a cheery note to those who are part of the space programs (not just for the USA program, though certainly since that's where I live that's the pics I'm looking at) - there's those of us who not only hope for a brighter future but make it so, by our heartfelt efforts and getting our hands deep in code and craft.

As good fortune would have it, I'll get to meet a larger batch of them at this year's LinuxPicnic than last. And I can reasonably hope I'll see a decent batch of you folks at Linux World Expo in my area too.

Why is this important, you might ask. It's the Internet Age; people live on their cellphones, podcast LUG radio reports at each other, spend more time in IRC than visiting their aunts and uncles, mail order things via PayPal or other money-kindred and about a billion online stores. Who notices that real world thingy? The wattage in the Blue Room is up way too high, too. But that's just it -- it may be a big blue room... but it's the same world we all live in... and we've all got a much finer chance of doing our best if we learn to share the bright marble Nature has granted us.

Hooray for open source. Have a great Summer, folks. See you next month.
