I got a chance to chat briefly with Greg Stein, the Chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, while at ApacheCon. We talked a little about what his role is within the ASF, as well as how the ASF relates to members and their employers.
The music at the start and end of the podcast was performed by Colm McCarthaigh and Paul Freemantle one night at the conference.
The podcast is here (Approx 9 minutes)
The “Lightning Lottery Talks” are always a popular part of ApacheCon. This year, I managed to sneak my microphone up onto the podium, and get a pretty good recording of most of them. Except for Geir, who insisted on not standing at the podium. 😦 (Presumably because I didn’t actually tell anyone I was recording.)
Over the next few weeks, we’ll be running some of the lightning talks, so you can get a feel for what they’re like. Most of them don’t quite work if you’re not there, but you’ll get some of the flavor of it.
I tried to interview Sally Khudairi, but she pulled a fast one on me and interviewed me instead. I’m talking about how I got involved in the ASF, and why I think it’s cool enough to stick around.
The music at the start and end of the podcast is Paul Freemantle on the whistle and Colm McCarthaigh on the guitar, as well as various other ASF folks in the background.
