> GET READY FOR WIDE OPEN NEWS
>
> We're happy to announce the latest addition to the Red Hat family: Wide
> Open News, provider of up-to-the-minute news and analysis on Linux and
> open source subjects. In beta since November, Wide Open News debuts this
> week at Linux World (booth #445). Available at http://www.wideopen.com
> and http://www.redhat.com , the site is geared for IT managers and
> other computer/business types seeking professionally produced news and
> other information about Linux and open source.
>
> Wide Open News is staffed by professional journalists whose resumes
> include Business Week, Wired, the Industry Standard, and U.S. News &
> World Report. To enhance content, top online news outlets such as
> Sanctum, The Register and The Industry Standard have signed on as Wide
> Open News partners. Russ Mitchell, most recently senior technology
> writer for U.S. News & World Report and former Bush Fellow at the
> Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is guiding editorial development
> for Wide Open News.
>
> "We recognize that computer professionals are extremely busy and
> suffering information overload," Mitchell said. "Wide Open News presents
> only the most important and relevant news, presented in a well-organized
> package." The site is owned by Red Hat, but the entire company,
> starting with Chairman Bob Young, understands the importance of fairness
> and objectivity in the news as part of the open source philosophy. As
> such, Wide Open News is an editorially independent operation. To anyone
> with doubts, Mitchell says, "Check us out. The proof is in the Web

> UNDER THE BRIM CONTEST V: THOU ART MORE LOVELY THAN...
>
> Ah, February, the month of Valentine's Day. Love is in the air, but it
> needn't be love for people alone. There are plenty of other things we

> under Linux, for instance. So we at Under the Brim would like to
> suggest that in honor of Valentine's Day, you proclaim your love for
> your favorite Linux feature or application through poetry.
>
> Simply write a poem in your favorite style (sonnet, haiku, limerick,
> whatever...) to proclaim your innermost feelings for whatever Linux
> feature or application you love most. Poems must be less than 40 words.
> The most interesting, odd, or breathtaking poem wins the Red Hat
> electric beer mug. This valuable collector's item glows red when you
> turn it on--there's no better way to enjoy a frosty beverage and support
> Red Hat at the same time.
>
> To enter, send your poem to UTB@redhat.com. Please specify if you are
> shy and DO NOT want your name or submission noted on the next
