This talk runs under Ed Finkler‘s Banner of Open Sourcing Mental Illness, who has been running these types of talks for over a year now. Ed talks very broadly on the subject, while still backing it up with his personal stories.
I’d like to mirror his work under that banner: I’d like to talk about depression, and addiction: Open source is work. Not just a work of passion, but real actual work. And it can be taxing. I’d like to discuss how.
Content Warnings galore: The topics I discuss and the stories I tell can be triggering. I am perfectly happy answering questions, but not everyone will be comfortable asking. You can always seek me outside of this talk.
