Chris Were Interviews Linux Musician Emily Fox

We find it very refreshing, watching these two young people sitting around talking about Linux distros as if it’s the most natural thing in the world. My how things have changed.

The Video Screening Room

Last year I wrote an article for FOSS Force about Emily Fox, the very talented musician who uses only open source tools to create her YouTube videos. I’m a musician myself and I’m in awe of her musical talents. Today, I was thrilled to come across a feature length interview with her on YouTube by Welsh open source enthusiast Chris Were. In this video learn her back story, including her dad who loves Gentoo Linux.

Incidentally, if you’d like to interview other open source enthusiasts, one popular tool is zoom.us. This is a tool frequently used by FOSS Force correspondent Robin Miller, who explains, “This tool just works. It’s not at all as frustrating as Skype or Google Hangouts.”

For the past 10 years, Phil has been working at a public library in the Washington D.C.-area, helping youth and adults use the 28 public Linux stations the library offers seven days a week. He also writes for MAKE magazine, Opensource.com and TechSoup Libraries. Suggest videos by contacting Phil on Twitter or at pshapiro@his.com.

    This is an interesting and talented young woman. “Ode to Her” deserves to be heard, so give it a listen.
