Segment Two- Linus at OSDl & other OSDL news

Tonight we will have a conversation with our old friend Larry Augustin , of Azure Capital partners, one of the founders of the Open Source Development Lab and current board member, in a discussion about the direction of OSDL now that Linus Torvalds has joined the team.

As an OSDL fellow, Linus will work exclusively on leading the development of Linux, the open source software that he created in 1991 as a university student in Finland. Torvalds will dedicate himself now full-time to guiding a distributed team of thousands of Linux developers around the world. At OSDL, he will have hands-on access to its state-of-the-art computing resources and test facility. He will also help set priorities and direction for the Lab's different industry initiatives.

Founded in 2000, OSDL has data centers in Portland, Oregon and Yokohama, Japan used by Linux developers around the world. With investment backing from Computer Associates, Fujitsu, Hitachi, HP, IBM, Intel, NEC and others, the lab sponsors key industry projects, including industry initiatives to enhance Linux for use in corporate data centers (Data Center Linux) and in telecommunications networks (Carrier Grade Linux). OSDL is increasingly being recognized as the center-of-gravity for the Linux industry: an important and independent central body that invests in the growth and innovation of Linux for the benefit of customers.

Larry Augustin joined Azure Capital Partners in September 2002 as a Venture Partner where he specializes in software and related infrastructure technologies, and works closely with the software team in evaluating new investment opportunities. Prior to Azure, Larry was chairman of VA Software and founded the company in 1993 as a Ph.D. student in electrical engineering at Stanford University. A strong advocate of collaborative software development, Augustin was the visionary behind, the largest Open Source development site on the Internet. With 460,000 users worldwide, is also the largest reference implementation of VA Software's commercial SourceForge product. Before founding VA, Augustin was a research associate in the program analysis and verification group (PAVG) at Stanford University where he worked on rapid prototyping languages, software engineering, hardware verification and software prototyping environments. Prior to Stanford, he worked as a systems engineer on high-speed switched digital services at AT&T Bell Laboratories. Larry Augustin holds a Ph.D. and an M.S. in electrical engineering from Stanford University, and a B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Notre Dame.
