Original OSNews Interviews In the past, OSNews' interview volume was quite a bit higher than it has been lately. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Eugenia and her husband last week, and she mentioned that we haven't done as many interviews, and that in the past they were always very popular. So I decided that I'm going to make it a personal priority to publish more interviews. I'd like to crowdsource the idea, and ask the OSNews community who they'd like to see us interview. Please let us know in the comments of this story who you'd like us to talk to, and what specific questions you'd like us to ask. Shoot for the moon. It's not as hard to get an email-based interview as you might think. Obviously OS-world luminaries will always be a priority, but feel free to recommend people from the larger tech community, or even geek-oriented popular culture.

Ok, he's been interviewed a few times, but he always has some interesting comments (and a great sense of humour too!)

The FreeBSD devs would be good to interview too. Always some interesting stuff happening there.

Like being an asshole, insulting people and getting pissed all the time?

I don't agree. For example, Theo is against heavy WLAN encryption (WPA, etc). He recommends the use of VPNs instead, because WLAN encryption gives a false sense of security.

People like Theo are controversial, but in a very positive way: They make us think.

Yes, Ulrich Drepper would make an interesting interview subject.
