Online magazines that might care, and who to talk to[edit]

  • Joe Brockmeier might be willing to write for LWN.net
  • Ruth might be willing to write for opensource.com (but is happier if one of us just writes)
  • Kjerstin Johnson seems to be interested in writing about women in open source: See: bitchmagazine.org profile/kjerstin-johnson
  • blog.smartbear.com - seems to do guest posts, and writes about open source.
