LinuxChix Hatch a Community (WideOpenNews)

Date: November 22st, 1999

Spotted by: lots of different people

Wide Open News did a feature story about our little project, interviewing a number of different LinuxChix list members. It's a pretty good story that reflects the balance between technical discussion and community that we've managed to develop. They didn't use the vast majority of the email interview I (deb) did, but that's tending to not surprise me any more :>

The good folks over at Linux.Com chose LinuxChix at their "link review" site for the day. Faith (the reviewer) was very generous and gave us a 24/25 total rating. We lost one point for "originality", but we'll work on that. I do have some ideas for the site, it's just a matter of finding time to implement them. Thanks, Faith. Hi Trey!
