My Interviews at Ubuntu Live, Day 2

Here is the second half of my interviews from Ubuntu Live. 

These are from Day 2 and show what an all star guest list the event had.  Be sure and check out me showing off my rusting Japanese when chatting with Horiguchi-san (#3 below).  Also, for an example of a customer running Ubuntu on Sun Hardware take a listen to what Chip Anderson of Stockcharts.com has to say (#4 below).

1) Marten Mickos, CEO MySQL                     Listen (6:10)

  • Topics:  I caught up with Marten after his keynote on day 2.  We discuss the LAMP, SAMP and WAMP stacks; how Marten got involved with MySQL; 110 airports; The two audiences that MySQL serves -- the ones who'll spend time to save money and the ones who'll spend money to save time; and how he thinks Jonathan Schwartz has done so far.

  • Topics: Making use of my rusty Japanese, I ask Horiguchi-san what type of work he does , where he uses Ubuntu and what he likes best about the distro;  What are his impressions of Ubuntu Live and would he consider himself an Edo-ko?

4) Chip Anderson, President Stockcharts.com        Listen (4:17) Topics: 

  • What is StockCharts.com, why they've chosen to go with Java and Ubuntu and why they've chosen to run it on the Sun Blade 8000; Why Chip has come to Ubuntu Live and why he digs the train from Seattle to Portland.
5) Matt Zimmerman, CTO, Canonical Inc.               Listen (3:49)
  • Topics:  What's Matt's role in helping to set Ubuntu's technical direction; how he found his way to Ubuntu and Canonical;  Dividing his time between Canonical on the desktop, server and mobile and why he recently made the move from LA to London.

 \* See more professional pics from Ubuntu Live by Duncan Davidson (the first one is of myself and David Duffey, who turned me on to the pics, competing in the Bungee run. I won :)

Endnote: The above files are in mp3 (thanks Patrick),  you can grab the ogg versions here.  I would also like to give an endorsement for the Levelator, which Simon turned me on to.  It was absolutely brain dead easy to use and it basically normalizes volume, and cleans up the files for you. And its Free as in Beer and Free as in Freedom.

Pau for now...
