from Linux Professional Institute

Jon "maddog" Hall currently is the Board Chair of the Linux Professional Institute. He is the Chairman Emeritus of wit.com

Starting in 1969 (a half-century ago), Mr. Hall has been a programmer, systems designer, systems administrator, product manager, technical marketing manager, educator, author, CEO and consultant.

Mr Hall concentrated on Unix systems since 1980 and Linux systems since 1994 (a quarter century ago), when he first met Linus Torvalds and correctly recognized the commercial importance of Linux and Free and Open Source Software.

Mr. Hall is an author of numerous magazine and newspaper articles, many presentations and one book, "Linux for Dummies". He writes for Linux Pro Magazine and occasionally blogs for them.

Mr. Hall has traveled to over 100 countries, speaking on Free and Open Source Software. He received his BS in Commerce and Engineering from Drexel University (1973), and his MSCS from RPI in Troy, New York (1977).

2019 is a year of anniversaries. It is the fiftieth year of Unix, the ARPAnet, people walking on the moon, Woodstock, Linus being born (yes, he is fifty) and many other things. It is the thirtieth anniversary of the World-Wide-Web, the twenty-fifth anniversary of V1.0 of the Linux kernel, Beowulf supercomputers, and 64-bit Linux. It is the twentieth anniversary of the Linux Terminal Server project, the Linux Professional Institute and LinuxFest Northwest (time flies when you are having fun).

Fifty years ago maddog wrote his first program, and fifty years ago he shaved for the last time.

Besides 1969 being a year of landmarks, it was the start of a unique operating system and (later) a free operating system that captured people's minds.

This talk will discuss the reasons behind these phenomenons.
