Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Jim Bray on Mozilla and Open Source

Thursday December 19th, 2002

Paul Blaauw writes: "The Canadian Broadcasting Corp's daily morning business synopsis, The Business Network, aired a piece this morning on open-source software. The 'columnist's' favourite browser is... you guessed it: Mozilla!" The radio segment, which mainly focuses on the popularity of open-source software among big companies, is available for listening online in RealAudio 5.0 format.

I don't think the format is determined by the content of the discussion (as if I needed to say that...) Like many, their streaming stuff is all RealCrap.

#6 I've heard that joke before...

The the realplayer stream linked in the main article has since moved on to more pressing canadian concerns.

To access the archieved stream either:

1) visit <…znet/20021219THURS-CO.ram>

2) or visit CBC Radio One at <> then click on "The Business Network" located on the lower half of the page then select "ARCHIVES" from the left side panel.
