193: Funding Open Source with Nadia Eghbal

January 29, 2016 at 7:00PM • 1 hour 48 minutes • Wiki Entry

We're joined by Nadia Eghbal to discuss a HUGE topic that's near and dear to our heart -- funding open source! We discussed what it takes to fund open source software development, Nadia's current investigative journalism efforts around funding open source (funded by the Ford Foundation), venture-backed open source projects, what it means for an open source project to be in good shape, some potential solutions to provide better long-term support for open source, and we tried to determine how much the open source of the world might be worth.
