Reboot ft. Nadia Eghbal

Working in Public


Event Details

Nadia Eghbal is an expert on the independent creator landscape, from working on developer experience at Github to her current work at Substack.

Her book, Working in Public: The Making and Maintenance of Open Source Software, explores the complex social and economic incentives that support open source development. She poses that what was originally sold as a utopian, communal project has now transformed into one driven by singular prolific creators who sustain entire products and platforms.

Event moderated by Jasmine Sun (Stanford Sociology), Jessica Dai (Brown CS), and Ben Wolfson (National Cancer Institute). 

This event series is hosted and managed by Reboot, which is an event series and newsletter that convenes book-lovers, writers, and technologists to imagine the future of tech, humanity, and power.
