Videos: Google’s open source year in review

Chris DiBona is Google’s Open Source Programs Manager, and oversaw many of the over 100 Google projects released in 2010. This week, he sat down with GNU/Linux wiz Jeremy Allison for a casual video interview to talk about Android, Chrome OS, new technologies like WebM, the Summer of Code, licensing, the state of open source around the world, some personal history, and more.

They ended up with over 45 minutes of video but for the geek at heart, the content is definitely worthwhile. Did you know that every Android release includes a million lines of new code? That one of every five Summer of Code students fails the program? Curious about how Google handles licensing? This video series is for you.

Check out the original post at the blog for Open Source at Google for a breakdown of topics featured in each part.
