- Monetizing Open-source is problematic
I write Open-source software occasionally. I have a project which is currently popular called faker.js. I've been working on Faker for over a decade. It's MIT licensed. This blog post will describe my attempt to monetize the Faker project with a cloud offering. It will eventually come around to the Engineers of a seventy five million dollar startup funded by Sequoia Capital and John and Patrick Collison signing up for my cloud offering, testing my service, copying the concept, hotlinking to my business's CDN, and now the CEO of the company David Hsu no longer responding to my emails. Overall it should be an entertaining and informative read.
