Liked Shop local to fuel the Open Source dividend (
In the small town where I live, some of the local businesses have "shop local" signs on their windows. They are reminders to support local businesses...we know that they are investing a portion of their profits back into our communities.... End users of Open Source software can help maximize the Open Source dividend by working with implementation partners that give back to Open Source. If more end users of Open Source took this stance, it would have a massive impact on Open Source sustainability and innovation.

Dries describes the ‘shop local’ equivalent for open source, and how he and his company are experimenting with promoting that. Also mentions as example two organisations who make open source contributions part of the procurement requirements. Supporting Makers more than Takers.
