Introversion and Open Source: an Unlikely Combination

Introverts are often thought of as shy, timid, and sometimes even incompetent, while extroverts are seen as competent, smooth, and worth of respect.

This is an unfortunate bias that we have let ourselves fall into. Including the introverts.

Some of the best ideas, most prolific writings, and inspiring actions come from introverts. I want to take you on a journey to discover the joys of introversion and why your view of introverts should change.

Much of this talk is inspired by the book Quiet by Susan Cain.
