You're not alone

Dismal Science & Sunzofman1, First I wanted to say that I enjoyed the show. It was good to hear about FLOSS from an ethnic perspective. I always felt like I was the only black person in FLOSS also, which was nieve of me. Now I know that there are 3 of us. ;-)

Thought-provoking first effort

Best episode of HPR I've heard in a while despite often inscrutable audio quality. I will have to go back and find the "Spics in Tech" or whatever that episode was called now. Your little mini-debate about whether social media APIs or cheap hardware will be more important for attracting a new audience for FLOSS was particularly insightful.
