Show Notes

Ironically (or perhaps appropriately), Bradley was at Samba XP with Jeremy the day this show was released. So, there he wasn't able to get show notes together in detail for this show.

However, Jeremy's slides from the talk are available (in PDF), and also ODP format. So, you can follow along with it in the talk.

Also, you may be interested to read Bradley live-dent'd Jeremy's talk, so the discussion there might be useful to read as well.

[23:14]
[indistinct] Signed up [indistinct] At Google you can opt out. Some of the people are You cannot actually [indistinct]

[29:53] On some NDAs you can have sections that say you are not allowed to use open source software and not allowed to write open source software, but the company is hiring you to do exactly this.

[30:12] In NDAs. I'm a consultant, and so I get a lot of NDAs on my desk. I know at least 5 large semiconductor companies who have this paragraph inside that forbid you to look at open source software and its clear that open source software is a clause for the death penalty when they're hiring you as a consultant to write drivers in the Linux kernel.
