We return to our normal places around the globe and continue to bring you tasty things for your ears. Stuart Langridge, Jono Bacon, myself and an inexcusable absence of Bryan Lunduke think up a new competition involving things in our houses, and also discuss:
- Where’s our free culture revolution? Lawrence Lessig predicted a world filled with remix culture and set up the Creative Commons, but little to none of it has actually changed the way people think. Or has it? (2.25)
- Graham Morrison of Linux Voice answers some of the questions from our discussion in the previous show about their magazine, their process, and why the December issue comes out in June (17.45)
- Mashed Voltage: we start a new competition. Read about it on the forum and listen to it on the show, and enter before September 10th to celebrate remix culture (36.48)

- Open source projects sometimes decide that they’ll build their own hardware. When they try, they fail. Why? What motivates the decision to do it in the first place? (54.22)

As mentioned here, Bad Voltage is a new project I’m proud to be a part of. From the Bad Voltage site: Every two weeks Bad Voltage delivers an amusing take on technology, Open Source, politics, music, and anything else we think is interesting, as well as interviews and reviews. Do note that Bad Voltage is in no way related to LinuxQuestions.org, and unlike LQ it will be decidedly NSFW. That said, head over to the Bad Voltage website, take a listen and let us know what you think.
