Help keep Libranet alive

Tal Danzig is taking a long leave of absence from activity at Libranet, but has solicited comments concerning the future of Libranet. IF anyone has any bright business ideas for Libranet and/or can take on the business (or pay for it and acquire it), let Tal know. I would like to see a Libranet business model where the software of the system itself was free, but served as a springboard for a support business, perhaps some application engines or application devices, and any other creative ideas. Let me know if you think of anything, and by all means, if you have any great ideas, contact Tal by checking out the Libranet Web site.

Which Debian distro to try next?

Considering trying the latest build of SimplyMEPIS 3.4-1 and also Kanotix 2005-04 RC 17. Tried Kubuntu 5.10 with KDE 3.4.3 recently, and it works very well. Been hacking at my hybrid Libranet system lately, using Debs from other repositories. Starting to break libraries nicely - will have to do some heavy repair work to get things right or just superimpose another entire infrastructure over it (or back out to the original CDs and move forward from there).

I don't know about other people, but unless the blog becomes a part of one's job or one's hobby, I am not sure it is always profitable to use these tools. I have, at times, found news groups, forums, and blogs to be useful sources of information, but I do not see either the blog or technology as an end in itself, merely a tool. Sometimes the tool is useful; other times it gets in the way.
