Vote for Jim and Larry

FOSS Force, which provides news and commentary on all things Free/Open Source, currently is running the second round of a poll to rank the best personal — meaning non-commercial — Linux or FOSS blog.

The first round of voting ended yesterday, and in the FOSS Force Best Personal Linux or FOSS Blog Competition, two CrunchBangers made it to the next round: James Eriksen, better known in CrunchBang circles as merelyjim and his blog Jim’s 2011 and me, better known in CrunchBang circles as lcafiero or “that damn moderator,” is there twice: once as Larry the CrunchBang Guy and once as his doppelganger, Larry the Free Software Guy.

While all the blogs are outstanding and I would encourage you to read all of them (they’re all linked on the ballot), I think both Jim’s and my blogs are worthy of your vote. Lucky for you, each voter gets two votes in this round, which ends next Monday, August 19.

Also, I would like to thank FOSS Force for giving those of us who blog out of love for what we advocate — rather than banging away on the keyboard for a check — the exposure that all candidates are getting in this poll.

So read up and go vote.

I’m Larry the CrunchBang Guy, and I approved this message 🙂

Larry Cafiero is one of the founders of the Lindependence Project and has just started developing software at Redwood Digital Research (RDR), a consultancy that provides FOSS solutions in the small business and home office environment. RDR is based in Felton, California, USA.
