Put Yourself on the Map!

We’ve just launched a way cool interactive marketing campaign that recognizes the awesome people who contribute to Linux and Open Source technology every day.

Go to www.novell.com/linux/ready and put yourself on the map. If you do it, you could win cool prizes like a digital camera, an iPod or an HP laptop pre-loaded with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop.

Plus, you’ll get to see pictures of all the cool people around the world who contribute to the open source community….

Welcome!

Welcome to Deep Green Thoughts. This is my personal blog, and does not represent the opinions of my employer, Novell. These are my thoughts. All mine. Just what I have to say. Nothing else. I hope you find it amusing, entertaining, or otherwise interesting. If not, well, I’m sorry. 🙂

I decided to write this blog at the good suggestion of my friend, Reverend Ted Haeger. Ted’s a great open source marketing guy, and he told me that I needed to get the word out about what I think about Linux and open source. I’m not sure I believe him or not. 😉

For those of you wondering exactly who I am, my day job is the Director of Marketing for Linux and Open Platform Solutions at Novell. That means I get to spend my days (and nights and weekends) marketing SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 — the platform for the Open Enterprise. I love my job and I love Linux and I love my SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop — the most rockin’ desktop on the market today.

When I’m not at work, I spend my time trying to be a good father to my daughter, Leah, and a good husband to my wife, Tammy. I’m also a crazy Red Sox fan and Fantasy Football player.

So enough about me… what do I plan to use this site to do? Hopefully, I will be a regular poster where I can talk about trends in open source, marketing, and the combination thereof. I’ll try to give you a little insight into what’s happening inside of Novell with Linux marketing and hopefully, I will hear back from you about what you like and what you don’t like about our marketing.

Finally, I’ll try to keep my posts short.

Till next time,
