The Basic Economics behind Open Source Funding in 2024

You have a project. They use your project. They have money. They give you money. It should only be so simple, but it still isn't despite the many platforms, blogs, and advice on how to get paid for your open source work. In this talk, we will fundamentally explain the kinds of economic models of open source, including a basic taxonomy on types of funds and funders, special considerations and points of friction for open hardware, and how to unblock your projects and communities from funding challenges.
