Today’s podcast is about being open. As the brilliant Frank Zappa once said, “A mind is like a parachute: it doesn’t work if it’s not open.”

We’ll talk with Jason Hibbets, project manager in corporate marketing at Red Hat and community manager for opensource.com. He’ll share with us how open source policies, legislation, and government bodies could provide a much needed transparency.
We’ll also chat with Brian Nosek, executive director of the Center for Open Science a nonprofit technology start-up dedicated to improving the alignment between scientific values and scientific practices.
