To continue the series of interesting people we met at OSCON Anandeep spends some time with Andreas Knab Computer Systems Engineer at the Center for Instructional Technology at James Madison University. Andreas works on an Open Sourced .NET project at the University called: Madison Digital Image Database. The project is an online slide management and teaching tool. Think of it as an online substitute for the 35mm projector from Art History class. In the podcast Andreas and Anandeep discuss the project, the development environment and Andreas' experience working on an Open Source project.

[Edit] We just got the following note from Andreas:
"...we actually just received an IMLS grant(http://www.imls.gov/news/2006/092606_list.shtm#VA) to add an API to MDID to facilitate interoperability with other image management and presentation systems, so the project will stay in active development for the foreseeable future."
