I'll state my case

14th July 2008: Season 5 Episode 22 : 95.14

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Chris Procter, and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. In this, the last ordinary LugRadio show, we're talking about:
  • Why don't pundits fuck off? Are we pundits? Why don't we fuck off? Including free bonus Aq vs. Jono arguing, as if you couldn't see that coming (4.52) [Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • twitter - the microblogging site. Why do people care? What's good about it? Is it Web 2.0 micro-cack or is it the New World Order? Our thoug (27.33) [Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • The internet makes access to "public" information hugely easy. This is normally a good thing, but there have been some well-publicised cases where this new lack of secrecy has caused some upset. Our thoughts on responsibility and the nature of public but sensitive data (44.10) [Discuss in the LugRadio forums]
  • Your emails, for the last time. Thank you all for the deluge of emails we received wishing that we weren't going to end the show and offering suggestions for how LugRadio could continue -- we'd need a whole other show to read them all out, but we read them all and we're really touched. Also, the nature of contribution to open source, and "best practice management" where good IT is replaced by slavish adherence to existing brands (62.15)
  • LugRadio Live is this weekend! The last ever chance to hear the LugRadio team's particular brand of lies and commentary. In addition, there are thirty speakers, a great exhibition, parties, your 5-minute talks on stage in the Gong-a-Thong (send us your talks!) and lots more. We'll see you all this weekend! (83.35)
