Hash: SHA1

Talking Community With Ubuntu's Jono Bacon

| OStatic: What is next for the Ubuntu community? Where would you like to see 
| it go in the future? Are there any outreach efforts or events that you'd 
| especially like to see pushed to the next level?  
| Bacon: We are only at the beginning of a long and exciting road. While I am 
| proud of the progress we have made in the community so far, there is still 
| much to do. Every community is like a growing organism: it reacts to stimulus 
| and change in its environment and changes accordingly.

| This week, we have some Linux news as usual and we also interview Jono Bacon
| about his recent Severed Fifth album release, Ubuntu and also Free Software
| and Free Culture in general.


The Ubuntu Linux community gets its first (second?) rock star

| You would think that it's a hard enough job taking on Microsoft's desktop
| dominance. Ubuntu's community lead Jono Bacon, however, may actually have an
| even more audacious goal in mind: completely change the economics of the
| music industry.


More From the Open Source Music Garage

| The thing many people don't realize is that successful musicians get most of
| their money from live performances, not album sales. Since the Severed Fifth
| album will be offered for free, sales of the album are irrelevant, and
| commercial success isn't a stated goal of the project. If Severed Fifth can
| simply create an enthusiastic community around an album, live performances
| might attract audiences and grow the community larger, though. It will be
| interesting to watch this effort.
