Rating: 5 of 5

In June of 2012, podcaster and veteran web dev Ed Finkler spoke openly about his lifelong struggles with mental illness with co-host Chris Hartjes. Four years later, a non-profit corporation with a dozen volunteers is working to change the tech and open source community. In this talk, Finkler tells the story of how the episode happened, the incredible response they received, and how it grew into a charity dedicated to changing and saving lives -- all by using the principles of open source culture.

Great talk covering how OMSI grew to change the world. Ed was honest, explained why mental health is so important, and showed where resources are available. Great talk!
