Pat Volkerding on Hacker Public Radio


Today's episode of Hacker Public Radio was an interview with Pat Volkerding.

The description at the link points out quite correctly that it was not technically-oriented, but I found it quite interesting and a glimpse of the person behind the distro.

Yea... me too,its interesting to listen to the voice and wonder... I see that he immediately steers the interview with "do you like incense",I use Frankincense and my favourite is black coconut,we all have many interests as well as Slackware and I play around with a 12 string guitar(Gibson Epiphone)...my life will be complete when I make a song and put it up on the internet for the very few to listen to. LOL

ps Sage ...

pps I bet Bob was there sharing his pipe,its that time of year,init. LOL

I was quite impressed with the wide range of his interests and knowledge.

I follow him and other Slackers on Twitter,he has been a bit quiet lately,there is one of him playing his electric guitar exactly as he said in the interview,my mate Eddy likes and plays that way but I prefer the rhythm of three chords,I just love bashing out a bit of rhythm... LOL
