Keith and Woody sit down with Linux developer, open source advocate and law student Luis Villa who was an early developer of Gnome to discuss Gnome, the Open Source community and even about intellectual property and the law.
Thanks to our guest this episode
Luis is a law student at Columbia Law School. His studies focus on the overlap of law and technology, including intellectual property, telecommunications, privacy, and e-commerce, and outside of class he serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Columbia Law School Science and Technology Law Review. Before school, he spent a year at Harvard Law School's Berkman Center as 'geek in residence', working on a variety of projects, including StopBadware.org and the h2o educational web software project. Prior to that, he was at Ximian and Novell, managing and working on Linux-based desktop projects with global teams, including the Evolution PIM, the GNOME 2.0 release (in collaboration with Sun), and the Ximian and Novell Linux Desktops.
