Cyberpunk Librarian – Episode 01 – The Open Source Writer
Cyberpunk Librarian

00:00 / 32:05

Welcome to the relaunch of the Cyberpunk Librarian podcast!

I’m back on the airwaves, or at the very least a wireless router or two, with a new podcast that’s pretty similar to the old podcast. As much as I love video and making videos, I find I just don’t have the time right now to roll them out as I’d like to. Meanwhile, I can make a podcast in an hour or so, and that’s start to finish. (Plus a little time to create an outline and stuff, but that can be done over the course of a week.)

On this, the first episode of the relaunch, we’re going to talk about writing a book and paying nothing for software!


  • Kubuntu Linux – Probably the easiest way to get Linux and KDE.
  • Kate – The text editor for KDE. Comes standard with most installations of KDE.
  • LibreOffice – The free, open source office suite.
  • Writer2ePub – Create ePubs from your documents in LibreOffice Writer.
  • Calibre – eBook management, eBook conversion, and so much more.
  • XFCE – A lightweight desktop for Linux. You can easily get it with Xubuntu.
  • LXDE – Another lightweight desktop for Linux. You can easily get it with Lubuntu.
  • I mentioned the Knight Wise podcast. Check it out!
