Podcast: Was open source inevitable? (Part 1)


In this four-part miniseries within the Innovate @Open podcast, we explore the alternative histories of open source software through the voices of many of the people who lived through its rise. The central question is “Was open source inevitable?” Not necessarily in the particulars but in the macro.

In this first episode, we consider those factors that probably were inevitable in more or less the form that we find them today. We then take the listener through the history of open source software by way of background for the upcoming episodes.

On this episode, we're joined by the following guests:
  • Andy Grove, former CEO of Intel, by way of a clip from a 1996 talk at MIT
  • Irving Wladawsky-Berger, who ran internet and then Linux strategy at IBM
  • Chris Aniszczyk, Linux Foundation
  • Harish Pillay, Red Hat
  • Jan Wildeboer, Red Hat
