Linux Inlaws.

This is Linux Inlaws, a series on free and open source software, black humour, the revolution and freedom in general (this includes ideas and software) and generally having fun.

In this episode our two chaps welcome Fred Dixon, product manager for BigBlueButton, on the show to talk about the project, its history and if it will finally run on Fedora and CentOS.

Surrounding musings include how to hack the GDM login screen, why Martin is not behind the recent Easyjet hack and poxes as well as anti-poxes.

free software licensing

The discussion about licenses and contribution agreements was interesting and informative. For example I really liked the way Fred explained how LGPL works in the context of projects like Big Blue Button, and how it compares to AGPL. Thanks for the show!

Good interview

I really enjoyed the interview. Good solid information about an open source project.
