Ubuntu made me puke in a bucket
And then a Playboy blogger saved my soul
Radio Reg The world is a disgusting, filthy place. So, it's important to take a moment away from the turmoil from time-to-time, spread your legs and eat some aromatic pistou of borage. And, god bless, that's exactly what you can do at the Ubuntu restaurant and yoga studio in Napa.
We discussed Ubuntu and better bowel maintenance during Episode 20 of Open Season - the world's leading open source software broadcast. Matt 'The Censor' Asay and Dave 'My Wee Hurts' Rosenberg were, as always, on the show along with yours truly. There was no guest this week, as my wife is set to go into labor any second, and, frankly, I didn't think we'd sneak in a show.
Anyway, this episode covered a lot of ground including the new iPhone rollout, Google's protocol buffers, Amazon's cloud, Mac lovers killing desktop Linux and Google alienating Android developers.
No else left to piss off, right?
We found time to bag on Larry Lessig, Sun Microsystems, Microsoft and Playboy too. All in all, a very productive show.
Matt also provided some lessons on censoring movies through a handy little device and gave us a review of the greatest open source book ever written.
Go ahead - snoop around.

Re: kind of like u
I understand u don't like me challenging your preciously held beliefs, but i do spend time in the on-line forums of interest...
It would seem, Dave, that you spend most of your time on ancillary matters, as well, what exactly does an enterprise OSS middleware software CEO do, if not decide the direction in which the company will go?
Without debating on The Reg, which i take it you don't want to do, I am still trying to figure out MuleSource, I always wish that start-ups would give more clarity in to their business, as its not like there is all that much proprietary to protect, like growth plans, exit strategies, etc...
but, i assume u don't want to take the time to do that, but i'll ask again, if not that, then what?
Looks like we have our next guest!
What world do you live where the FCC has anything to do with podcasts? Even if Ashlee had a wardrobe malfunction we'd never know. Plus he's a dude.
I don't take offense to anything you say. I don't know who you are (except one of my many admirers.) It seems like you spend all day looking for things to comment on. I doubt there is much to debate either.
I liked your new blog entries, though I am not familiar with the weird style of not capitalizing and using single letters as communication. Last I checked you can't comment via SMS here.
Re: fine and appropriate
I do like the Open Season, and i want it to continue, so barring a FCC complaint, i am simply pointing out that your audience (beyond Matt) may cringe at some comments, and therefore you should treat your presence on these podcasts as a privilege not a right...
I would be happy to have a quasi-debate on anything that I have some knowledge of ("clouds" is not 1 of them), i like that CNet gives you a forum, and along with Matt's blog, i gather occasional bits of knowledge from them...
As u noticed, I do follow this market, and u r in a position to make statements that go beyond your potty-mouth, so use it well...
if you want to take offense to JBI, JEE, ESB, or OSS comments i make, i cant do anything about it, i dont plan to step down from my free-lancing ways,
as always, i am for hire, if you think that would be a more appropriate way of communicating...
btw, i have taken your advice and updated my "crappy" blog for your reference, perhaps that could be a place to start...
