Announcing the date of the FOSS revolution: 2032!

Rick Jelliffe at O'Reilly Broadcast – Announcing the date of the FOSS revolution: 2032!:

"So why is retirement important? It is because I suspect that if FOSS can present itself in a form that is convenient and fun for retirees to take up as a hobby, it will have access to an incredible reserve army of unemployed talent and knowledge.

[…] I think the time will come when the sheer numbers of sedentary, programming savvy, underemployed, volunteer-minded retirees will require different organization of FOSS projects."
