View Full Version : BBC World Service listeners tune in

October 26th, 2006, 06:40 AM
The latest edition of the weekly BBC World Service show Digital Planet, carries an interview with none other than our SABDFL, Mark Shuttleworth (http://www.markshuttleworth.com).
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 (http://www.tsf.org.za/) 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 (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4849402.stm). 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 (http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/rmhttp/downloadtrial/worldservice/digitalplanet/digitalplanet_20061023-1700_40_pc.mp3) (11MB). Mplayer plays this file fine after skipping some initial data at the front of the file.
