This was actually great inspirational talk. It really explians how things should be in open source community. I'd add one point to it: even if you don't actually like or personally interested in project, even if you don't even ever use it, but you find it might be useful for someone it is a good idea to spread the word about it. That what help so much!
I'd like also like to agree on the following comment:
" Cal for some of us some of the names did not mean anything."
It was unclear did you mention Beau because he is open source developer or because he is your friend. It would be more motivating to pay more time to open-source if you would mention someone who is not a PHP celebrity. Maybe local open source developers or someone from popular open source projects started last year. Probably for that we need something like https://rubyheroes.com
And thanks for this great talk
