This month off has really made me want to write about how contributing to #OpenSource is oftentimes mutually exclusive with having a #Disability.

And how that's super problematic in an open source economy.

@juliaferraioli YES. I've thought about a sort of panel interview that I'd like to conduct and publish in LWN or something, interviewing disabled contributors and maintainers to talk about their work styles, accommodations, etc.


@kgerloff Please feel free to take this idea and run with it, as I clearly haven't done it yet and don't know when/if I'll be able to make the time. @juliaferraioli

@brainwane @juliaferraioli I won´t be able to do this for the foreseeable future. But perhaps @gijs might be interested?

@kgerloff @brainwane @gijs I'd be happy to collaborate!
A bit down the line. I'm a bit overbooked at the moment 💜
