FW: Free Software Project on Salon.com

   Starting Monday, online news and technology magazine Salon.com will
launch a new feature titled, The Free Software Project, that will feature
regular stories on the open source movement. Would you like to link to it
from your Web site? Or, alternatively, could you announce its launch to your
listserv members?
   The Free Software Project will draw largely on the reporting and
commentary of Andrew Leonard, who has covered the news, politics and
technology of the burgeoning movement since 1997.
   In fact, in a new experiment in online journalism, the Free Software
Project will give your users a chance to participate in a book that Leonard
is writing on the topic. The book will be rolled out chapter by chapter on
the site and subjected to the scrutiny and criticism of the community it
chronicles. Special discussion software will allow readers to post their
comments directly to its text, and Leonard will respond to their critique,
editing as he goes along.
   If you're interested in putting this feature up on your site as a static
link, let me know and I'll send you the URL. Or, if you'd like to link to
each individual story or chapter as it comes out, I can send those URLs when
the time comes. Also, we can set up an automatic feed on your site and
update it every day, without you having to lift a finger. We offer that in
plain text, HTML, XML or RSS.
   Thanks for your time and interest. I look forward to hearing from you.
