As the video connects I see Brian Fox, sitting in front of a collection of model spacecraft which adorn the shelves behind him.
It's a fitting backdrop for a conversation about the genesis of the software supply chain problem, and how exploration and discovery has led us to where we are as an industry today.
Think about this, it all started when we began to assemble our software from components that we didn't write ourselves.
And Brian was right there.
He was there since the beginning of the open source supply chain universe - a pioneer of sorts. A contributor to the Maven ecosystem, and today he's at the technical helm of a successful company that enables the promise of making safer software sooner.
I had the pleasure to work with Brian in the past, but I never had the opportunity to hear his story until now.
