Hey all,

I have the opportunity to interview Jack Moffitt, the original creator of Icecast. He discontinued his development in 2002-2003 (so here is your chance to ask some questions!).



614I'm an entrepreneur and a hacker.

My current project is called Chesspark and is an online community for chess players built on top of technologies like XMPP (aka Jabber), AJAX, and Python.

Previously I created the Icecast Streaming Media Server, spent a lot of time developing and managing the Ogg Vorbis project, and helping create and run the Xiph.org Foundation. All these efforts exist to create a common, royalty free, and open standard for multimedia on the Internet.

I am passionate about Free Software and Open Source, technology, music, and photography.

Any thoughts on creating a solid open source alternative to Edcast and Butt?

you don't mind me answering right?

I'm pretty sure KH Branch has WebM support for a while now.
also the 2.4-beta support WebM and Ogg Opus.

While Edcast itself is an open source alternative to the shoutcast dsp.
another Open source project named: Mixxx (http://mixxx.org/) is a decent alternative to SamBroadcaster.
