On Monday, March 15 2005, I'm scheduled to do an in-person interview with Jason Matusow. Matusow is the director of Microsoft's Shared Source Program and is the company's top thought leader when it comes to Microsoft's go forward strategy on the open source front. The interview with Microsoft open source kingpin will be recorded and made available as an MP3 download and through the RSS feed for ZDNet's IT Matters series of podcasts (see: ZDNet's Podcasts: How to tune in).
In advance of the interview, I thought I would check with ZDNet's audience members to see what questions you'd like Matusow to answer. Unfortunately, I won't have him for the whole day so I won't be able to ask all of your questions, but I'll certainly try to ask the best and most thought provoking ones. If you'd like to submit a question, use the comments section below (please don't e-mail them to me). This way, Matusow can watch too. For the sake of disclosure, I sought approval from Matusow to post this blog entry in advance of our meeting (some people like to keep their schedules private). Before posting questions, a Microsoft spokesperson suggested that ZDNet's audience members might want to familiarize themselves with the company's Shared Source Program by visiting the program's homepage on Microsoft's Web site.
