Nadia does a great job of explaining how open source works and the challenges it's facing today in a very accessible manner. (Disclaimer: I'm quoted in the book multiple times, got a free copy of the book, and have spoken to Nadia directly on the topic of open source for her "Roads and Bridges" white paper.)
Lacking structure but a decent introduction to the world of open-source software and the background work that goes into maintaining them.
This is a good reference for someone in the software world but with no open source experience looking to get up to speed. If you make open source, you’ll find that this clarifies thoughts you’ve had, and maybe gives you ideas for how to restructure the way you spend your attention budget.
