Jon Corbet

Yesterday, at work, we finished a Linux Device Drivers class, taught by Jon Corbet, senior author of ORA's Linux Device Drivers book and editor of Linux Weekly News.

I taught Jon in a class ,when he was a beginning grad student, freshly down from the high plains of Wyoming.

He reviewed the printing chapter of Barbie's Guide to Linux. In the draft he reviewed, I'd named a printer "haemer." His comment was "Haemer. Is he still alive?"

I renamed it "corbet."

Jon autographed my copy of the book, "Nice to be on the other side of the classroom after all these years."

Nice job, too, Jon.

I took these pics with my new, Nokia 6263, uploaded over bluetooth. That was fun.
