Live podcast interview about GNOME, OOXML, etc.

Last week I suggested to Bruce Byfield that a podcast interview might be a good way to put a human face (okay, okay: voice) on some of the GNOME-related issues currently being debated in some quarters of the community.

Thanks to support and interest from, we now have some cool infrastructure for it, including web based question submission, live call-in questions, and podcast distribution. Rock!

This Wednesday, December 5, 2007, at 1 p.m. US EST (GMT -5) is hosting a live podcast featuring Jeff Waugh, Roy Schestowitz, and reporter Bruce Byfield. [...] Our editor in chief, Robin ‘Roblimo’ Miller, will moderate the discussion, which you can access either through a link we’ll post here on about 30 minutes before the conversation starts or directly at BlogTalkRadio.

That’s this Wednesday, so check it out and tune in!

  1. Giving Roy and his website extra publicity is a pretty bad thing; I don’t really think that anyone in the open source community should be promoting the kind of posts that are on there. Unfortunately they’re so frequently found to be ill-informed, counter-productive and incredibly biased.

    Nice to have a public interview to clear up the FUD; shame about what it promotes in the procedure.

  2. @Francis: Yeah, I was concerned about that, but hopefully this will have a positive effect on the distribution of truth and perhaps the quality of reporting on that site. We’ll just have to wait and see. :-)
