Episode 2 of the Utopian Open Source Radio show aired on Wednesday, June 6th on MSP Waves network. It was a great show with lot of fascinating Open Source news, insights and predictions.
As always, the Open Source Radio show was hosted by the smooth talking @jedigeiss. Our bringer-of-news @techslut stopped by as did three interesting Open Source guests: @roxane, @oroger and @mkt. Each brings their exciting Open Source projects to share - Tools to make curating and authoring easier and a frog to help us create stories.
Open Source News
What better way to start off our show than with news from around the Open Source community. @techslut brought us exciting news items from the Open Source world.
Utopian.io has recently launched a new program for Project Owners - VIPO (Very Important Project Owners.) By taking part in this program project owners become part of an exclusive group and allowing them to add their projects to the whitelists of categories that require them. POs will receive professional guidance from Utopian Community Managers to assist in creating Task Requests on Utopian.io and in turn access the professional services offered by the Utopian community for free.
