I’ve been told by a friend of mine about an article in a digital magazine, Free Software Magazine (FSM), which report an interview with the developers of a great open source piece of software called Ekiga, which implements a software phone (softphone) which uses Internet, SIP and VoIP as its infrastructure. Here’s the cite:

Ekiga is the most popular, free VoIP software available. When I asked the Ekiga team for an interview, there was a lot I didn’t know. For example, I had no idea I’d be interviewing quite so many people (coordination was quite a challenge!), and—more importantly—I didn’t know that so much knowledge would have been uncovered. Every single member had something important to say, and the result is an interview that becomes a unique insight into Ekiga, the VoIP world, free software development and team work.
Julien Puydt, Damien Sandras, Matthias Schneider, Yannick Defais, Jan Schampera, These guys know telephony. They were born with a directory in their pockets. This interview is not to be missed. Enjoy.
This site, FSM, has a curious feature. You can actually hear the article by means of a voice synthesizer (which is pretty realistic I think) powered by a company called OdioGo. It has an embedded flash player. You can also export the audio clip to podcast format.
