KINGSPORT, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 21, 2000--In a move to add capabilities and expand their reach, Linsight announces E.J. Wells as co-director of Linsight, an online Linux information resource.

Dave Whitinger, founder, believes promoting Wells within Linsight, which already provides an authoritative resource of all Linux upcoming events and available Linux training, implements a new beginning.

"Through Linsight, we are working to unite the existing Linux community while expanding the use and acceptance of Linux to a broader audience," said Dave Whitinger, co-director and founder. "With E.J. in his new position, we can now concentrate on adding entirely new dimensions to our service that we were not previously able to."

E.J. brings to Linsight years of network administration, systems programming, web development, and software project management experience. E.J. joined Linsight in November 1999, to direct the software development of the Linsight network.

"I plan to add breaking industry news, company profiles, and links to relative information helping Linsight open the door to direct interaction with multiple audiences through multiple means," said Wells. "This partnership will lead Linsight to the cutting edge of Linux information providers."

Linsight was established by Dave Whitinger in October 1999 and is funded by Atipa Corporation. Linsight is a free service to Linux users and business professionals who can expect to see new services, led by Wells, operational in February.
