Dev Talk Monday is the series that brings you awesome dev talks every Monday
Last week I came upon this talk from dotJS 2012 completely by chance: What is Open Source and Why I Feel So Guilty?. In it, with tons of candor, sincerity and humor, @fat(bootstrap, ratchet, hogan, etc) narrates the history of open source from the closeness of the IBM days to GitHub and beyond, tells about the struggles of an open-source contributor, about burnout, puppies and makes a plea for the future to fucking revolt and fix this shit.
The slides are freaking awesome too! – in a brilliant nerdy way. You can follow @fat on twitter and at his blog, he has some very nice – yet old – articles like this one, or this one or this other one… (voice slowly fading in the distance).
