Bob Young, whose passion for online publishing and free Internet content is hardly a secret, has committed more of his fortune to the cause.
Young has donated $50,000 to ibiblio, the online library and digital archive based at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Young became wealthy as the founder and former CEO of Red Hat, the Raleigh-based Linux software company. He now runs Lulu.com, another Raleigh company that sells e-books and helps authors self-publish their works.
He also has long ties to ibiblio, and previously has provided financial support to the archive. His latest gift came through the Triangle Community Foundation on behalf of Lulu.
