Working in Public
by Nadia Eghbal
People feeling they are entitiled to something which another person does for free, in their free time is bonkers, but it's how it is.
The book The Making and Maintenance of Open Source has been an eye-opening read for me. Highly recommended: https://t.co/OBPJKRo2t7Link to Tweet For more fun meditations on this, see @nayafia’s book Working In Public: https://t.co/bgmhxbEKnP (which I am about two chapters into and am enjoying so far)Link to Tweet And if you haven't seen our Interintellect Talks series -- not as conversational as Salons but fascinating deep dives for our community and beyond --
Check out the one with @nayafia about her book Working in Public, a new Bible for all things Open Source: https://t.co/htqRPQcnosLink to Tweet The weirdest thing I could tell non-tech people about how the tech world works is this:
The entire tech world runs largely on free software written by volunteers, and everything you touch sits above that base.
@nayafia has written THE book documenting that astounding reality. https://t.co/t7l9lJ5dnXLink to Tweet This is now out on Kindle for $10. Nadia is very smart and it’s worth reading anything she writes on open source.

Working in Public is how we meet like-minded people, find our next role, become a better contributor & feel connected to a community
