The December 2010 Newsletter is now available from hibbets.net. Yeah, I know it’s February, but you know you’ll want to read about our adventures in NYC, Orlando, and some snow in Raleigh.

We started off the month with a trip to New York city. We got to visit some family and we went to see the New York Giants beat the Washington Redskins at New Meadlowlands Stadium. The rest of the month saw a few holiday parties and some community meetings. Then the holidays showed up. Red Hat shuts down for the week between Christmas and New Years so we got some much needed rest. Mom, Katie, Ronal, and Ava joined us Christmas Day. We even had a white Christmas! Jason went to Orlando, Florida to the NC State Bowl game with Jim and Buddy. Then we capped off the month celebrating the New Year. Welcome 2011. Thanks for reading this months newsletter.

About Shibby

Jason Hibbets is a senior community architect at Red Hat which means he is a mash-up of a community manager and project manager for Opensource.com--a publication and story-telling platform for open source communities. At night, he wears a cape, and is a captain for the Open Raleigh brigade, as well as a co-chair for NC Open Pass. Jason is the author of a book called The foundation for an open source city--a resource for cities and citizens interested in improving their government through civic hacking. While writing the book, he discovered his unknown super power of building communities of passionate people. Jason graduated from North Carolina State University and resides in Raleigh, NC with his wife, two kids, two border collies, chickens, lots of tomato plants, and a lazy raccoon somewhere in an oak tree. In his copious spare time, he enjoys surfing, running, gardening, traveling, watching football, sampling craft beer, and participating in local government--not necessarily in that order, but close to it.
