Regular LXFers will know that we have a section on our DVD called Directory, which has been largely the same over the last few years with not much going on. Well, I'd like to change that! Back in the day, when I were a lad, computer magazines used to have regular sections for readers to advertise their work - fanzines, artwork, PD software compilations etc. If possible, I'd like to bring some of that spirit back with a new, revamped Directory section on the disc.
Maybe you've got an idea for a free software project, and you're looking for contributors. Perhaps you've written some Creative Commons music on your Linux box and want to share it with the world. Or possibly you're offering Linux support in your area and want to spread the word. Yes, you can use the internet for these things, but we know from our readers that: A) many don't have regular internet access; and B) many of those who do just don't have time to browse a bajillion websites.
So it'd be great if the directory could be a central gathering area for LXF readers to share their work and passion. Of course, there's limited space on the disc, especially with all the distros we cram in, so we can't start including ISO images or anything like that. But if you want to share your efforts with the 27,147 people who read LXF, drop me a line and I'll get back in touch.
