Segment Two- Linus at OSDl & other OSDL
Tonight we will have a conversation with our old friend
Larry Augustin , of Azure Capital partners, one of
the founders of the Open Source Development Lab
and current board member, in a discussion about the direction of
OSDL now that Linus Torvalds has joined the team.
As an OSDL fellow, Linus will work exclusively on leading the
development of Linux, the open source software that he created in
1991 as a university student in Finland. Torvalds will dedicate
himself now full-time to guiding a distributed team of thousands of
Linux developers around the world. At OSDL, he will have hands-on
access to its state-of-the-art computing resources and test
facility. He will also help set priorities and direction for the
Lab's different industry initiatives.
Founded in 2000, OSDL has data centers in Portland, Oregon and
Yokohama, Japan used by Linux developers around the world. With
investment backing from Computer Associates, Fujitsu, Hitachi, HP,
IBM, Intel, NEC and others, the lab sponsors key industry projects,
including industry initiatives to enhance Linux for use in
corporate data centers (Data Center Linux) and in
telecommunications networks (Carrier Grade Linux). OSDL is
increasingly being recognized as the center-of-gravity for the
Linux industry: an important and independent central body that
invests in the growth and innovation of Linux for the benefit of
Larry Augustin joined Azure Capital Partners in September 2002
as a Venture Partner where he specializes in software and related
infrastructure technologies, and works closely with the software

Larry was chairman of VA Software and founded the company in 1993
as a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering at Stanford
University. A strong advocate of collaborative software
development, Augustin was the visionary behind SourceForge.net, the
largest Open Source development site on the Internet. With 460,000
users worldwide, SourceForge.net is also the largest reference
implementation of VA Software's commercial SourceForge product.
Before founding VA, Augustin was a research associate in the
program analysis and verification group (PAVG) at Stanford
University where he worked on rapid prototyping languages, software
engineering, hardware verification and software prototyping
environments. Prior to Stanford, he worked as a systems engineer on
high-speed switched digital services at AT&T Bell Laboratories.
Larry Augustin holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. in electrical engineering
from Stanford University, and a B.S. in electrical engineering from
