About the Public Relations Officer
Bill Kendrick is a founding member of LUGOD, has held both "root"
and "sys" officer positions numerous times, and has acted as Public
Relations Officer and Webmaster for a number of years.
Bill is CTO of Smashwords, an ebook publishing and distribution
platform. In his spare time he writes Open Source
games and educational software, and runs an annual retrocomputing &
classic gaming event. His interest in Unix and Linux began in college,
and was fueled by his frustration with using Windows95 on a roommate's
computer. As of 2017, he lives in Washington state, but still helps
LUGOD out when he can!
