Fake Steve Jobs defends his freetard-ness

Dan Lyons is a great guy, and actually likes open source. We prove it.

Open Season Episode 12 was a very special session for us, as we got Fake Steve Jobs (aka "Dan Lyons") to join in. We spent a fair amount of time talking with Dan about his position on open source and why he gets so much flak for his coverage of the open-source community. Dan is hilarious and often insightful. It was a pleasure to have him on the podcast.

One of our best. Have a listen. (Also, the link provides my coconut cream pie recipe, which is definitely worth having.)
