  • The guys talk supply chain security — the weak[est?] point in your infrastructure?
  • Frank makes a bold cliam; apparently “too many” is more than “some.” Breaking mathematical discoveries like this, you’ll only find on Refactored.
  • The guys debate open source funding models.
    • Chris stumbles his way into one possible idea: the Open Source Endowment Fund. Crypto scheme or the future?
  • … and much more!
