Dane Scott over at le Buzz is looking for someone to take over the day to day news and care of le Buzz. He isn’t going anywhere, but is just too over-extended, and needs to focus on TuneTracker and BeOSRadio. I can vouch for the fact that le Buzz has a pretty decent news posting system (I wrote it) and wouldn’t be too hard to maintain… especially if you were already into audio and beos. If you are interested, get in touch with Dane.

    Wow.. wish I had the contacts to do something like that. Dane is one of the best things to happen to the BeOS; an eternal optimist. I’m sorry to see that he’s gotta leave that project to someone else — those are really big shoes to fill — but he’s only one man. ;-)

    Good luck to Dane, and to anyone who takes over LeBuzz.

    Chief Buzzer Named!

    from LeBuzz (Quoting Dane Scott):

    I am really pleased to announce we have a great new addition to the
    leBuzz family. Jonathan Walls, “a Scotsman from Glasgow,” is taking over
    as the “Editor-in-Chief” here at leBuzz. I’ll remain on as “Senior
    Editor,” contributing stories along with a number of very credible
    volunteers who have signed up to help.

    Jon is a talented writer, a huge BeOS advocate, an audio and music
    enthusiast, a software engineer, and a former audio gear salesperson. He
    specializes in effects units, recording gear, and instruments, among
    other items. I’d say he’s a pretty likely candidate for the job,
    wouldn’t you? Welcome, Jon!!

    (Not Quoting Dane Scott): I was glad to see this, & thought I’d pass along the word. Good that LeBuzz is going on, as well as Dane’s work with Tunetracker & BeOS Radio. (Being too busy with BeOS projects is a Good Thing!)

    I’ll be doing some writing for Lebuzz. Hopefully I can slap the bad attitude right out of the naysayers without getting censored. :^)

    Looks like Dane has some good people picked out to write in his stead. I have conversed with a couple of the guys now and they are pretty cool. Should be fun.

    Re: Chief Buzzer Named!

    I’ll be doing the same when I start posting to leBuzz, so to make sure anyone going through this forum also sees it, I just want to say I’m not a software engineer. I can and have programmed, and was pretty good at it (top of the class, don’t you know, but I did electronic engineering and IT, not computer science - there’s better dedicated programmers out there). After graduating I did turn down some offers from Agilent and Nortel to do embedded programming. I’ve chosen to take a more customer facing role.

    I do however for a software house, integrating and customising implementations for the likes of AT&T, BT, Merill Lynch, whatever, so rest assured I have plenty of _opinions_ on programming .. which as an editor I’ll mostly keep to myself. I just want the programmers out there to know that I am receptive to developers input, and well capable of appreciating it, but don’t want people to think I’m passing myself of as a software engineer - I respect the field too much for that.

    By the way, Dane, if you read this - don’t get me wrong, I’m flattered!
