Most Macadmins use Suspicious Package regularly. Many also use Apparency. But few know much about the person behind all this awesomeness. In today’s episode we’ll interview Randy Saldinger, of Mothers Ruin Software and talk about plenty of suspicious topics, from packaging to making software scriptable to… the future of distribution (or as much as we can ascertain given the current available information).

Most Mac Admins use a lot of Apple products. A lot of us also use Homekit either at home or at work. And some of us run a special server just to bridge all the things (maybe running on a Mac or a pihole in the basement). We’ve discussed home automation on the pod, but in today’s episode we’ll dig in deeper, with developers from the popular hombridge.

This week’s episode digs in a bit on something we feel we glossed over in the previous episode with Greg Neagle. Innovation runs rampant in the open source communities (in a good way). Why is that? What about the open source community brings us Apache, Tomcat, and other technologies that end up changing the world? We solve this multi-trillion dollar question on this episode; or we just jabber on; we’ll let you decide which!
