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
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

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
). 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

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
