This week Steven has the pleasure of speaking with long-time open source geo contributor Howard Butler about foundational open source geo technologies GDAL and PDAL. The discussion turns, as so often here on the Geomob podcast, to the topic of open source sustainability. Howard comments on various strategies and business models including "barn raising", and the distinction between free software and free support.
