TCLP 2009-10-21 Interview: Randal Schwartz

This is a feature cast.

In the intro, letting you know that part one of a two part interview with me is up at the Life after Law School podcast.

There is no listener feedback this week.

Due to the length of the feature, there is no hacker word of the week this week.

The feature this week is an interview with Randal Schwartz. I first met Randal through his talk on his experience being snared under one of the problematic computer fraud and abuse laws. We don’t discuss that topic in the interview but if you are curious, he recommends his appearance on the Security Catalyst podcast and his interview with Stephen Euin Cobb on the Future and You. Randal also mentions the Squeak by Example book in the interview which is available as a free electronic edition and a print-on-demand edition. You can also hear Randal on the excellent FLOSS Weekly podcast which I also recommend for its consistently superb coverage of free software and open source projects of all varieties.

Grab the detailed show notes with time offsets and additional links either as PDF or OPML. You can also grab the flac encoded audio from the Internet Archive.
