Robin Hanson at Overcoming Bias pointed to an interview he did for EconTalk. I love Hanson’s stuff, so I downloaded the podcast and listened to it. It was great. The host kept mentioning other big names he had interviewed, so I went back and looked at the archives. It’s a freakin gold mine, even the non-economists:
Eric Raymond on Hacking, Open Source, and the Cathedral and the Bazaar
Shirky on Coase, Collaboration and Here Comes Everybody
Varian on Technology
Chris Anderson on Free
Ayres on Super Crunchers and the Power of Data
There must be like 150 hours of incredibly interesting looking stuff there.
