I and my blog have just been defined as “relatively old”…

“DD: Linuxaria blog is relatively old. How, why and when have you decided to start it?

RC: I finished some long-term project in 2010, and I found myself with some spare hours in the week. So, I’ve thought to help the Linux community in some way. I’m not a programmer, so I cannot help directly in developing new programs. That’s why I started a blog where I write about my experience and other useful tips for every Linux user. I hope I helped Linux users in finding new and useful information in these 2 years.”

see Linuxaria: I really fell in love with the idea of Open Source and GPL even before I actually installed my first Linux

My blog has been around since 2007. Maybe that’s “really old”.

Anyway, Dark Duck has a good interview with a stalwart FLOSSie. The subject reveals GNU/Linux is widely used in universities and by young people so it’s a promising technology in Italy.

    Mr Pogson:

    Well, it’s always welcome when you are recognised for your efforts. And in blogging terms, 2007 is practically pre-historic: I applaud your indefagitibility.

    No, really. The half-life of blogs is (I’m guessing here) something like eighteen months. I can’t be bothered to do the calculations, but that puts you in the top tenth of the top percentile, I believe.

    That’s a pretty decent set of laurels to rest upon.
