Collaboration Notes

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search

Collaborating with independent thinkers and autistic sociopaths can be challenging - yet the open source culture is filled with this character type. I take the word autistic sociopath from Vinay Gupta, who pointed out that many cultural creatives are so focused and absorbed in their work that they may not notice other external or social input coming their way.

Here I document, as founder of this project, some of my ongoing experiences in managing a large-scale project involving a diverse array of global contributors. This is meant to provide insights to others who are eager to learn about project management, and it helps me to understand these issues more clearly by communicating them.
