Nadia has done some great work in this area since her epiphany.
I do wish she had cited something from "holding up the sky".

> 3. Roads and Bridges: The Unseen Labor Behind Our Digital
> (PDF) -- *The pervasive belief, even among stakeholders such as
> software companies, that open source is well-funded makes it harder to
> generate support. Some infrastructure projects operate sustainably, either
> because they have a working business model or sponsorship, or because their
> required upkeep is limited. An unfamiliar audience will also associate open
> source with enterprise companies like Red Hat or Docker and assume the
> problem has been solved. However, these situations are the outliers, not
> the rule.*
> 4. FOSS Heartbeat <https://github.com/sarahsharp/foss-heartbeat> -- *uses
> contributor participation data (currently from GitHub) to categorize users
> into these seven roles*, which are: *Issue reporter, Issue responder,
> Code contributor, Documentation contributor, Reviewer, Maintainer,
> Connector.* Sarah Sharp's latest project.
