PG Podcast - Episode 31 - Nadia Eghbal on fostering sustainable creativity
November 2017 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Nadia Eghbal (@nayafia) is one of the world's leading experts on the community aspects of open-source software development. I first learned about her work in 2016 when I read her report on open-source sustainability called Roads and Bridges: The Unseen Labor Behind Our Digital Infrastructure. That report resonated a ton with me since I've previously considered a career as an open-source software developer and recently thought a lot about how to keep my own software projects afloat in a sustainable way.
In this PG Podcast (the first time we've ever spoken!) Nadia and I talk about the challenges of fostering people's creative endeavors in a sustainable way, both in the software domain and beyond.
