We caught this gem by accident while testing our audio link to the O'Reilly Open Source Convention (2004). In one of the most entertaining presentations [clip] from OSCON 2004, Paul answers the questions, what motivates great hackers? [clip] What do they need to do their jobs? How do you recognize them? [clip] How do you get them to come and work for you? [clip] And how can you become one?

Here's Paul's written version of the presenentation. This presentation was recorded at the Open Source Convention (OSCON) 2004 in Portland, Oregon. See our list of other OSCON presentations.
