New edition of Lar's book


Lar Kaufman returns with the third edition of "Running Linux", which has just gone to Production for final typesetting/indexing. Lar will talk about the new edition and about the changes in Linux and the Linux community over the years.


Lar Kaufman is a graduate of Boston University Law School, living in Concord, Massachusetts a few miles from Walden Pond. He has worked as a documentation consultant for many years, and began writing about UNIX in 1983. Since then, he has written on System V, BSD, Mach, OSF/1, and Linux. His hobbies include interactive media as art/literature, homebuilt and antique aircraft (he's a licensed aircraft mechanic), and natural history. Formerly a BBS operator, in 1987 Lar founded the Fidonet echoes (newsgroups) Biosphere and BioNews. He is currently working on a project to develop a media lab incorporating adaptive technology for print-disabled use through the law library where he studies. The lab will use a Linux server and provide user services on Windows NT, Macintosh, and Linux systems.
