Excerpt

Paying people for their work is radical, whether we're talking about open source contributions, second-shift diversity work, or even care at home. But giving people the resources necessary to make these community contributions is the only way to make our communities more sustainable.

Description

Paying people for their work is radical, whether we’re talking about open source contributions, second-shift diversity work, or even care at home. But giving people the resources necessary to make these community contributions is the only way to make our communities more sustainable.

This talk covers how we value assets like infrastructure and community, why low valuation destroys sustainability, and how we can find opportunities to pay people for their work. I’ll draw on case studies from my own experience, including crowdfunding, sponsorship and freelancing, as well as discuss examples from multiple open source communities.
