In Segment One- Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the week. It is possible we may comment about the clueless PR hacks.

In Segments Two - Eric Raymond- the Hacker
We will chat with Eric about life as one of the worlds most recognised hackers and open source pundits. We will discus guns, food, the most recent code, whatever comes up.

In Segments Three - Eric Raymond's Open Source Manifesto "The Cathedral & the Bazaar" --Revised and Updated for the New Millennium.

The Cathedral & the Bazaar has been called "the most important book of the software frontier of the 1990s"--"the definitive work on the open source evolution"-.......

The accolades for "The Cathedral & the Bazaar," the book of seminal essays, (originally published online) by hacker/philosopher/god; Eric S. Raymond, acknowledge the impact of open source software on the technology world. Raymond's evangelism helped persuade Netscape to release their browser as open source, put Linus Torvalds on the cover of "Forbes Magazine" and Microsoft on the defensive, and helped Linux rock the world of commercial software. As spiritual father of the open source revolution, he has created an unparalleled philosophical analysis of the hacker world with his writings, and has shown how profoundly the open source movement affects the world at large.

O'Reilly has just released a revised and expanded edition of "The Cathedral & the Bazaar" (US $16.95 paperback, $24.95 hardcover), including new material on open source developments in 1999 and 2000. New essays address the economics of open source and open source as a competitive weapon.
