Open Web Podcast 6: Sizzling Open FX

Category: OpenWebPodcast

re-posted from the Open Web Podcast blog

I have moved to Mozilla along with my long time friend cohort and collaborator, Ben Galbraith. He joins us on this podcast, along with Alex, who joins us as a Noogler.

You can download the podcast directly (OGG format too), or subscribe to the series, including via iTunes).

We get back in the saddle as we discuss:

  • Alex’s move to Google, and the Chrome team
  • John’s work with Sizzle and working the various JavaScript libraries
  • JavaFX and the lack of buzz
  • Whether Java itself, now it is more open source, can be part of the Open Web family
  • The video problem, and what we can do.

It was interesting to have Alex talk about how the Java plugin itself is far from Open, and what that means, as well as the issue with patents and video, which has a way of depressing me every time I think about it. I don’t want to meet a piranha.

What are your thoughts?

Horrible music (especially the volume compared to the voices).

Great points from Alex Russell! Have more podcasts with Mr. Russell and I’ll be sure to listen in every time.

Especially loved how everyone laughed when Resig mentioned Stallman. Hilarious.
