from the home of Wayne's World, Aurora IL
Tonight LIVE on www.thelinuxshow.com

At 6pm pt, 7pm mt, 8pm ct, and 9pm et.... Kevin Hill, Jeff Gerhardt, Doc Searls (Linux Journal), Arne Flones and Russ Pavlicek; have another strange and wonderful show lined up tonight on The Linux Show!!

Segment One- The News. We will cover THE HOT NEWS of the last few weeks tonight. In particular, we will talk about the CARP backlash, and how the passage of the new oppresive web casting fees are starting to motiveate chants of Taxation without Representation, and we will also talk about the very sad news of Gene Kan's death .

Segment Two- Tim O'Reilly And The Strange Case of the Disappearing Open Source Vendors

We will be joined tonight by publisher and technology maven Tim O'Reilly. Tim is the founder and CEO of O'Reilly & Associates, thought by many to be the elite computer book publisher in the world. O'Reilly also publishes online through the O'Reilly Network (www.oreillynet.com) and hosts conferences on technology topics (incluiding a very popular Open Source conference). Tim is a respected activist for open source and open standards, and an opponent of software patents and other incursions of new intellectual property laws into the public domain.

Tonight, though we may meander our way through several issues with Tim (such as the high price of technology books ;-)), our main focus will be to discuss Tim's view of the "state of the industry" for Open Source vendors. Has something gone wrong? Or, are we where we should be with the development of Open Source as an industry model?
