So I'm thinking of doing a podcast. I dont really want to do the kind of podcasts that are currently out there. I want to do something that i less about technology but more about people. Think Fresh Air but with open source/free software guests. Less about technology but more about the people and what drives them. I had actually had two versions in mind, one that's actually talking while cooking and the other format as simply a conversation in an intimate setting.
A lot of the software used by public institutions is proprietary. This means that the public - including you - is financing software that cannot be modified, studied, shared, or improved.
How can we put our trust in public bodies if they don't have full control over the software they are using?
Shouldn't your money be used to develop software that benefits you and other citizens?
If you think it should, join the #publiccode campaign.

Scientists Have Found a Woman Whose Eyes Have a Whole New Type of Colour Receptor
'...neuroscientists in the UK recently announced that they've discovered a woman who has an extra type of cone cell - the receptor cells that detect colour - in her eyes.
...that means she can see an incredible 99 million more colours than the rest of us, and the scientists think she's just one of a number of people with super-vision, which they call "tetrachromats", living amongst us...'
