CHAOSScast Episode 48: Creating Appreciative Communities and Implicit Mentoring with Anita Sarma and Iftekhar Ahmed

In this episode, Georg Link and Sean Goggins chat with Anita Sarma (Oregon State University) and Iftekhar Ahmed (University of California, Irvine) about their research into the inner workings of open source communities, what makes some communities more successful than others, and how that success affects the community itself. This is a fascinating episode about implicit mentoring, socio-technical systems, and the metrics behind them. You can listen here:
