Podcast: Red Hat's Harish Pillay on open source and sustainability

One can look at sustainability through a number of different but related lenses. What incentives (and education) needs to be in place for manufacturers to maintain their devices and, in the process, engage more with upstream communities? How can users not lose access to their devices or simply need to stop using them because they're out of support? What are some of the mechanisms through which upstream developers can get compensated for their widely-deployed code?

These were some of the questions I talked about with Harish Pillay at FOSDEM in Brussels in early 2020. Harish is a Red Hat colleague of mine; he's Head, Community Architecture and Leadership, and works out of out Singapore office. He has a long history with open source and this is a podcast you'll enjoy listening to if you have any interest in these topics.
