TCLP 2012-05-14 How This Hacker Sees Public Policy

This is a feature cast, an episode of The Command Line Podcast.

I will not be headed to OSCon in July after all but will be keeping my other event and travel commitments for the rest of this month, and June.

The hacker word of the week this week is fork.

The feature this week is another monologue trying to bring to the surface my hackish assumptions, this time on how I see public policy, especially my own experiences in cultivating a second career recently in this space.

View the detailed show notes online. You can grab the flac encoded audio from the Internet Archive.
