Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, PJ Hyett, Doc Searls(Linux Journal), and Arne Flones have a downright strange lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

In Segment One - Hot News: We will be covering the hot Linux news of the week. In particular we will talk about the continuing controversy of reporters "making news." This week the controversy takes the form of Ronny Ko at 32bits and his story Linux: A Story Of Hype. In Segments Two- What is up with Linux.Com and OSDN
We will be joined by Dean Henrichsmeyer , Site Director of Linux.com and by Chris DiBona Marketing Manager of OSDN Events. Dean has been an active Linux advocate for six years now, and has been helping out in various open source projects such as Themes.org. Dean recently took the helm of the Linux.com portal. Chris is VERY well know throughout the Linux community as "Grant Chairman" of Linux International and the Co-editor of Open Sources magazine. Over the last three years, this is the fifth appearance on TLS by Chris DiDona.

The focus of the conversation is to discuss the changes in portal economics over the last 12-18 months and what is in the future for both OSDN and Linux.com. We will discuss the roles OSDN and Linux.Com hope to fill as the future moves forward, and identify the trends in financial models of the over saturated portal space. In particular we will focus on those tools and assets VA continues to focus back to the community.

In Segments Three- Of Penguins and Pigeons: The Triumph of the RFC 1149 Implementation
This past week history was made in both the development of the linux community and the larger Internet community with the long awaited implementation of RFC 1149, and the creation of the avian based Ultimate Wireless Network. We will be joined tonight by the original writer of the RFC David Waitzman of BBN Systems and Technologies Corporation. For details on the original RFC, check out the web site for the BLUG a Linux user group.
