Two Great Audio Segments on Open Source and Podcasting
In the meantime, I've been listening to a whole lot of podcasts while I move. It's been great. My brain is stuffed with awesome information!
Two that I highly recommend listening to are:
Andrew Morton speaking about his roll as the #2 decision maker regarding the evolution of the open source Linux kernel. 50 minutes of speaking, 40 of Q&A. This is an awesome introduction to how open source software development occurs...and it is a beautiful process. Democratic? Not really, but collaborative yes. This talk is relatively easy to understand and very entertaining.
Adam Curry on issues in Podcasting. Curry does a terrific podcast of his own almost every day, The Daily Source Code, and he speaks at many different forums, but this is the most in depth discussion I've found so far of the history of podcasting, as well as it's past, current and future issues. Curry is key in this exploding medium, his politics are pretty cool, and this is a good discussion. If you haven't listened to it, I'd recommend an episode or two of The Daily Source Code first.
Both of these are from the site IT Coversations, which for computer and internet enthusiasts is simply one of the best things there is right now on the whole internet. I cannot sufficiently express my enthusiasm for the site. It's fantastic.
I hope you'll take the time to check out these audio learning adventures (if you will), they are great for putting on an mp3 player and listening to on a bike ride, but you can listen to them on your computer as well.
