The latest edition of the weekly BBC World Service show Digital Planet, carries an interview with none other than our SABDFL, Mark Shuttleworth.
On the show, Mark talks about Ubuntu, with his inspirations for running the Ubuntu project. The role of free software in education and developing countries is discussed regarding a South Africa project supported by the Shuttleworth Foundation allowing students to download and print certified educational materials for no cost.
You can download and listen to the podcast of the show from the Digital Planet homepage. Mark Shuttleworth’s interview on an Open Source future is right at the very beginning.
Note: It has been reported that the commandline-based MP3 decoder 'mpg123' may have trouble the podcast MP3 link (11MB). Mplayer plays this file fine after skipping some initial data at the front of the file.
