Where is Emmett Plant?

We write everything ourselves."

  • "Another thing that is different is that we don't have a comment system on Binary Freedom, and we never will."
  • "The third big difference is that we are not owned by a Linux hardware company."

  • Binary Freedom will not cover Linux exclusively; it will also deal with open technology, both software and hardware. Plant said the staff wants to keep it interesting for themselves, so they can keep it interesting for the readers.


    I like the looks of the new site, and I wish Plant and his team all the success in the world. But I really just want Plant to keep that job a little longer than the others in his recent track record. I may have to write about him again someday, and trying to keep up with all his moves makes me dizzy.
