About the Open Technology Now Blog

Media coverage of the open source world is very fragmented today, with personal blogs hosting much of the notable content and many aggregator sites that separate the relevant content from the background noise, thus promoting it on their media channels. The news outlets are massively oriented towards the Linux crowd, the other open source operating systems and non-related projects barely getting mentioned.

The Open Techology Now blog was created from the desire to create and maintain a portal and news outlet that caters to all open source enthusiasts, from the Rockbox fans to the Haiku OS bunch, and beyond.Its goal is to deliver up to date information, helpful tutorials and reviews that maintain a high objectivity standard.

Behind the Open Techology Now blog is a single man, namely Doru Barbu, living somewhere down in Central Europe. I have been a long-time user and supporter of open source software and the surrounding philosophy, and I am an informatics student at a local university. Although I created various blogs, tutorials, translations and software snippets related to open source, the first serious contact (or, rather, head-first dive) with journalism was during my stay at Softpedia.
