Research Triangle Park, N.C. (PRWEB) December 15, 2022
Bob Young, co-founder of Red Hat, The Linux Journal, The Center for Public Domain, and Lulu.com is joining the advisory board for Coko, a company known for building modern, open-source tools that enable the publishing of critical knowledge better, faster, and cheaper.
The announcement comes from Adam Hyde, Founder & Principal Architect of Coko. Hyde has followed the work of Young since 1995 when he was first introduced to Red Hat’s open source 2.0. Since 2007, Hyde has used Lulu’s print-on-demand service for FLOSS Manuals, his award winning manuals focused on the creation of quality documentation about how to use free software.
Expressing his enthusiasm, Young said, “Coko’s goal of building widely used standardized tools using an open source approach is producing great value for the publishing sector. When Adam asked me to join the advisory board I was happy to do so as they are an important organization contributing to the future of publishing. Lulu.com's involvement will advance the great work Coko is doing more quickly, and bring more people to the table to collaborate and benefit from Coko’s work.”
Equally excited, Hyde said, “I extended the advisory board invitation to Bob during a phone call recently when we talked for over an hour about the future of publishing and possible collaborations. I was honored when he accepted the invitation immediately. Bob’s guidance and collaboration is a valuable opportunity for innovation in the open source publishing industry.”
