Stand-up comedy about FLOSS

SeaGL 2020

What off-the-wall licenses should the OSI consider next? Where’s the fine line between maintainer success and maintainer burnout? Should we alias git reset --hard to git regret --hard?

I’ve been in free and open source software for years, and I perform stand-up comedy. Sit back and enjoy 20 minutes of jokes about our field.
