mar, 11/20/2018 - 09:00

I teach a traditional "get to know college" course for freshmen. It's designed to help new students work on the skills they'll need to be successful in college, such as time management, personal management, and communication.

It's also become a prime opportunity for me to introduce freshman students to the guiding principles of open culture.

I've developed a method for treating my class as an open organization. To create a more collaborative and inclusive environment, I let the students co-construct the official course syllabus.

Some folks grew up on Linux. But for most of us, we started using it later in life.

Whether you switched from another operating system, or are one of the lucky few who knew no OS before it, all of us were beginners at some point.

How old were you when you started using Linux? Do you remember that time clearly, or is it so far in the past that it's but a faint memory?
