There is a growing (and worrying) misconception caused by some websites and people who sell HTPC devices with XBMC pre-installed. These often contain add-ons from we which we would like to clearly distance ourselves, and for which we will not offer support of any kind. We will not call these add-ons by name.
However if it all seems to be good to be true like watching content (movies and tvshows) for free, you should start asking yourself if this can still be considered legal. In some countries it can be considered clearly illegal.
It a regretful development that in our eyes, the most awesome media centre there is, is clouded by such a development. These few people are giving and spreading a misconception of what XBMC is and stands for, and are giving it a bad name. We would like to remind everyone that XBMC should be seen as a media centre platform for which you must provide your own media obtained through a legally obtained manor, PVR or by using add-ons which do not clearly violate copyright laws.
Hopefully we can break this tide and restore and improve our good name that we worked so hard for. As always the only and official news and XBMC versions can be found at from http://xbmc.org/about/ Please help us and spread the word of the true purpose of XBMC. Thank you.

Introduction

Kyle Johnson is the Dean of Information Technology at Chaminade University in Honolulu, HI.  There he is responsible for all centrally administered aspects of Information Technology at Chaminade University, including budgeting, planning, public relations, and proposal preparation and grant administration.

Kyle Johnson was previously the Associate Provost for Information & Learning Resources at SUNY Institute of Technology in Utica, NY. In that role he provided vision, strategic and operational planning, and day to day oversight to Information and Learning Resources, a combined library/IT organization that also included instructional technology and tutoring.

Before his time at SUNYIT, Kyle was Chief Technology Officer and Director of Enterprise Applications for Guilford College. He was responsible for providing active leadership, including vision and long range planning, for Information Technology and Services; for integrating information technology (academic and administrative computing, media services, application/web development, and telecommunications) into all aspects of the institution; for close cooperation with the faculty, library, and other academic and administrative departments in meeting technology needs and in developing and finding support for innovative uses of technology in fulfilling the mission of Guilford College; and for the coordination of the College's many electronic resources. He served as the primary advocate for information technology and leads the College in imaginative and contemporary applications of these services.

Before that, Kyle served for a decade as the Director of IT for Student Affairs at Duke University. In that position he provided strategic and long range planning for technology use in Student Affairs, including residential and student activity spaces, developed and articulated strategy for support of Division's technology infrastructure, including growing the department as division needs increased, acted as project manager for significant technology projects within the Division and as technical liaison for institutional projects, and provided representation on the university's Information Technology Advisory Council.
