Audio for Copyright, Contracts and Licensing for PHP Developers session

The organizers of the PHP Québec Conference were gracious enough to give me an unedited copy of my Copyright, Contracts and Licensing for PHP Developers session.

I cleaned the audio up last night, stripping out some of the more odious filler words (I seem to say “Umm” rather often), shortening pauses as I switched slides, removing redundant asides (like asking if there are any questions, when no questions then follow) and excising the introduction and applause.

After a good deal of consideration, I did chose to leave the errors and other flaws in the content presented. These flaws were presented to the audience and they should stay in the recording.

Of course, I don’t want people to be mislead by any of the flaws; to prevent this, I am transcribing the entire talk, …

Recommendation to my fellow F/OSS developers

I temporarily withdraw my recommendation until the intentions of Oracle become less cloudy...

Hash: SHA1

Allow me to make a recommendation to my fellow Free Software
developers.  Oracle Corporation's recent business practices show
aggression toward the Free/Open Source Software community, and their
database couldn't be confused with Free software if one had allergies
and a blindfold on.

Therefore, I recommend to my compatriots in the F/OSS community the
deprecation of oracle as a database back end to our software.  I am not
necessarily suggesting that software currently providing compatibility
with the database remove the existing support; however, moving forward,
the effort that would otherwise be spent creating an oracle connectivity
layer might instead be spent adding support for one of the many fine
F/OSS database engines.

For more information on the process of deprecating software, see Wikipedia: …

OSCON 2005

I just got the word from my manager that I'm going to OSCON this year. Whee! I've been wanting to go since '98, and it seems that this is the first time I'm going to be able to make it. I'm looking forward to it.
