My Interveiw with Gordon Haff of Iluminata
By barton808 on Aug 13, 2007
Ive still got a handful of interviews to roll out from OSCON as well as a couple new ones I taped last week at Linux world. After getting feedback though, Ive decided to offer them up one at a time instead of pushing out a whole bunch at once.
Today's talk is one that I had with Gordon Haff during O'Reilly Radar on the first day of OSCON. I chatted with Gordon about his impressions of UbuntuLive; His take on the spirited discussion between Eben Moglen and Tim O'Reilly; The importance of Open Data; and GPLv3.
For you reference, here is something Gordon wrote about OSCON the day after I met with him: 5 Questions to Ponder from OSCON. As well as a couple of his postings on GPLv3 that I mention in the interview: GPLv3 Grinds Along -- Does it Matter (April 6, '07) and Linux and GPLv3: A Legal Take.
Gordon is a Principal IT Advisor with Illuminata
and was at OSCON covering open source business models and licensing.
Recently Ive seen a bunch of Gordon, first at OSCON then last week at
the T2 launch and then later that same day for drinks that Sun was
hosting in conjunction with Linux World at the W in San Francisco. Who knows where he'll pop up next!?
Pau for now...
