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’re going to be exploring some of the ways that open sourcing can provide more opportunities for us in the sectors of community politics and science. We’ll also take a less conventional reading and explore how being open about our sexuality can create more compassion in the world.
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.
Lastly, for our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with GoTopless spokeswoman, performer and model Rachel Jessee about being open to the idea of gender
