Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame: Laura Cowen

A few weekends back I was in Wolverhampton for the power and glory that was LugRadio Live 2009 and I just wanted to write up a quick blog entry about someone who never ceases to impress me with her work: Laura Cowen.

As usual, Laura was knee-deep in crew responsibilities at the event, and she could be found operating video cameras, coordinating other crew members, helping with A/V and also stepping in as one of the presenters at OggCamp the following day. By day she is a technical writer, user experience advocate, and geek, but by night she joins the other reprobates on the rather excellent ubuntu-uk Podcast and she was heavily involved in the planning of the hugely successful OggCamp. Laura is not only accomplished in both her work and Open Source activities, but she always brings an incredibly warming atmosphere to the projects she is involved in, including many LugRadio Live events both in the UK and the USA.

I just wanted to say a huge thanks to Laura for all her contributions to LugRadio over the years and her continuing work with the Ubuntu community. Thanks!

    Absolutely. What’s more, based on conversations I’ve had with her, I doubt she believes she deserves the accolade. She couldn’t be more wrong.

    Agreed with you (and Adam) entirely.
