I’m going to be talking with one of the most massively cool geeks on the planet. He got a ton of really good press this last week from Engadget, TechCrunch, and Boing Boing’s Cory Doctorow because of a game he’s released call Linux Tycoon. It’s a simulation game where you try to assemble the ultimate Linux distribution for fame and fortune. He also does lots of other great stuff including hosting the Linux Action Show along with Chris Fisher, a fun weekly look into the goings on in the Open-source world. It’s the first show I listen to on Monday mornings on my way to work. There’s also the main video version and all the details can be found at http://JupiterBroadcasting.com.
