Novell's PR director leaves to change the world

Novell's Bruce Lowry is a prince among men. I wish him the best.

Bruce Lowry, Novell's head of global public relations, will say 'Goodbye' to Novell this week to start with the Skoll Foundation as its communications director. I think the world of Bruce - he is an honorable, wonderful person who was a credit to Novell and will be an exceptional addition to the Skoll Foundation.

I wonder who will replace Bruce to tell Novell's story as credibly and consistently as Bruce did? I have perhaps been unduly harsh on Novell at times; to Bruce's credit, he has always responded in a constructive way that made me rethink my position, not deepen it.

He will be missed in the open-source world. At least his good work will continue at the Skolling Foundation, where he'll help to advance a range of positive social projects. This gets him back to a focus global issues, development, social change, and other things he worked on in his earlier incarnation in the US Foreign Service.

Good luck to you, Bruce. You deserve the best.
