Chattin' with Josh Berkus on the steps in Moscone

With today's entry I will have finally worked through my backlog of podcasts, phew!

Last but not least is Josh Berkus, PostgreSQL core team member, board member of Software in the Public interest and a member of Sun Microsystem's Open Database team (aka... a busy guy).

 
Josh Berkus (kinda reminding me of Tom Wolfe but younger and without the tie :)

                            Listen to the Interview  (12:17)

I hooked up with Josh on Day 2 of Linux World San Francisco and we chatted about PostgreSQL, his path to Sun and the show itself.  Josh considers him self a "lapsed developer" who has been kicked up to management (my words, not his) and a globe trotting conference goer spreading the good word about FOSS and PostgreSQL. 

In reflecting on the Linux World he talked about it now serving a different purpose in the post-crash world and focusing more on management and less on developers.  If you want to get a feel how Linux World used to be back in the good ol' days, Josh recommends checking out the Southern California Linux Expo coming up in February.

Pau for now...

About

I look after Sun's relationships with the various GNU/Linux communities as well as our relationship with the FSF. Last year, my family and I emigrated from Silicon Valley to Austin, TX.
