TechBytes Episode 45: Skype Sold, Facebooks AstroTurfson May 15th, 2011 at 7:18 AM
Summary: Tim and Roy have a loaded discussion about Skypocalypse, rogue PR agencies, and a variety of other topics regarding the growth of GNU/Linux and beyond
THIS show covers the Skype acquisition, Google’s GNU/Linux products, confirmed cases of AstroTurfing, and common FUD that resurfaces.
Feedback on the show can be posted in comments, in Identi.ca, and in the Techrights IRC channels (among other means of communication).
Today’s tracks are “El Camino” by No te va gustar, “Future Eyes” by Ear Pwr, and “Tokki no Rassha ” by Dolly (I made a mistake by introducing the song as “Dolly”, not the artist). We will try to include more music in the future as well, mainly from SXSW 2010 Showcasing Artists (get the torrents legally here). We hope you will join us for future shows and consider subscribing to the show via the RSS feed. You can also visit our archives for past shows.
