Meet IT industry analyst Dan Kusnetzky (video)

Author: Robin 'Roblimo' Miller

Dan Kusnetzky is one of the people you see quoted all over the place, especially about GNU/Linux and its effect on the computing world. But not many people (as a percentage of the world's total population) have had a chance to sit down with Dan and learn who he is in any kind of personal sense, so one day I lugged my video gear to Dan's home office in Osprey, Florida, and handed him a microphone. He spoke for 19 minutes, which is an awfully long time for an Internet "get to know you" piece, but since Dan's opinions have been known to sway industry perceptions (and some IT companies' stock prices) more than you'd think possible for an individual, I'm running the whole thing here, because some of what Dan has to say is important to management and business types who need to know how the open source segment of the IT industry has gotten to where it is today, and where it may go in the near future.
