Linux.com chats with new OpenSUSE community manager Joe Brockmeier (video exclusive)

Author: Robin 'Roblimo' Miller

Yes, it's the same Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier who used to be editorial director of Linux.com, and was later editor in chief of Linux Magazine. This week he was named openSUSE community manager, a position analogous to the one held with great distinction by Max Spevack at Fedora until just a few weeks ago. Just about every publication that covers Linux and FOSS has been clamoring to interview Joe, and he's been typing email interview answers like crazy. As a break from that routine he stopped by the Linux.com editorial office and talked a bit about how the new job is going, what he expects to do, and how it feels to be the interviewee instead of the interviewer.
