On the Radio Today
At the risk of inflating the audience who might witness my floundering and therefore cause further embarrassment, I was interviewed for a half-hour radio show on from 4:30-5:00 (PDT) this afternoon on Oregon Public Broadcasting. You can stream it live by following the link, and it should be archived there after five tonight.
Don't say you weren't warned.
Linux is one of the best known sources of "open source" code used to operate computers. Users can generally view the source code, alter it and re-distribute it, with the idea that open source software can then be developed as a public collaboration with no single corporation in charge of it's development and distribution.
While it began with computer code, open source is starting to move out of the realm of software and into society at large.
This week, we're exploring how open source is migrating into daily life and what some of the implications mean.
Host: Colin Fogarty
Guest: Eric Stauer, creative director of Creative Commons; Stuart Cohen, CEO of Open Source Development Lab; and Jeff Alworth, founder of Blue Oregon.
