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!
