Over at Linux.com Jennifer Cloer talks
with Greg Kroah-Hartman
about the Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit
in April, and other topics. When asked how moderating a panel of
developers differs from interviewing Linus Torvalds, he replied: "Seriously, it's much the same, but instead of just one person answering questions, there are 3 different viewpoints being offered, which can result in the conversation leading places you never expect. An example of this would be the kernel panel that happened last year at LinuxCon Japan, where the developers on stage got into a big technical argument with the kernel developers in the audience, much to the amusement of the rest of the audience. If done well, it can show the range of ideas the the kernel developer community has, and how while we don't always agree with each other, we work together to create something that works well for everyone.
