Promotion and celebrity

25th February 2008: Season 5 Episode 12 : 86.36

Jono Bacon, Stuart Langridge, Chris Procter, and Adam Sweet talk about Linux, open source, and all manner of associated things. This show includes:
  • Your Shipment of Chris has arrived. Chris Procter, the most recent addition to the presenter roster, has some pretty strong views on various technical subjects; we challenge his viewpoints on servers and programming (1.15) [Discuss this segment in the LugRadio forums]
  • The results of the Pimp My LugRadio competition! Our winner, who provided the best thing for promoting LugRadio, is Sean Ellis: Sean wins an Asus Eee PC! You can see all the entries at the Pimp My LugRadio page; marvel at Sean's winning entry, and at all the others! (19.55)
  • Some more details about the upcoming LugRadio Live USA 2008, April 12th-13th, San Francisco -- registration is now open, and you should buy a ticket now! (23.41)
  • The cult of celebrity: is there something separating those well-known people who hack on open source software and those who don't have their names in the limelight? We don't think so (39.23) [Discuss this segment in the LugRadio forums]
  • We receive a plaintive and heartfelt cry for help from Aza Raskin: see for more details and our latest competition, in which you can win the LugRadio Finger of God! (56.12)
  • Your emails to the show: this week, you (and we) are talking about the Tuxcast podcatcher, other podcasts, Tunapie, a browser for internet radio and TV streams, your thoughts on whether WriteRoom is a good idea (and Pyroom, a clone for Linux), previous winners of the exclusive LugRadio t-shirts (if you won one, take a picture of yourself and blog about it!), technical support as per our previous discussion, fear of chins, and how much to pay for software (62.08)

If you'd like us to review your project or your product, drop us a line and let us know.

Thanks to EfficientPC for donating the EEE PC for us to review and then give away in our competition!
