Second podcast interview: Joel Spolsky

The second Dan Bricklin's Software Licensing Podcast is now available. It is an interview with software developer, author, blogger (Joel On Software), and Fog Creek Software co-founder Joel Spolsky.

Joel has the perspective of one who worked for Microsoft back in the 1990's and develops and sells proprietary software today. We talked about developers keeping track of where their code comes from and watching out for GPL code that shouldn't be there, why developers who read Slashdot and Eric Raymond are more likely to be at least somewhat aware of copyright issues than their managers who don't, differences between Windows and Unix when it comes to combining code (especially back in the days when the GPL was written), access to Microsoft source code, economics of Open Source, and more.
