Fish Fry Meets Software Freedom Conservancy

Once in a while, we all need some help. When the vast landscape of our next software project makes our head hurt, we need a place to go to hang out and throw our ideas around. So – where do we go? Software Freedom Conservancy, that’s where. My guest this week is Bradley M. Kuhn – Executive Director of Software Freedom Conservancy. Brad and I chat about what Software Freedom Conservancy is all about, how we can participate, what projects they are working on, and I even slip in little question about New York City. Also this week, I check out the Tiny Engineer Superhero Emergency Kit and reveal how this tiny but mighty kit can impress your friends and family.
