Michael Tiemann on the role of Fedora

Michael Tiemann on the role of Fedora.
Tall and lean, wearing a distinctive red Fedora, Michael Tiemann is a
familiar presence at Linux and open source conferences. He was Red
Hat's CTO for a while, and is now Vice President, Open Source Affairs.
I think of him as a hacker/economist/entrepeneur, three roles that he
wove together early on as the co-founder of Cygnus Support (later
Cygnus Solutions). His chapter in the 1999 book Open Sources: Voices from the Revolution
tells it like it was: “I was tasked with growing the top line by day,
and helping complete the work for GCC 2.0 and G++ by night.” [Jon's Radio]
