Pivoting to a content site

Emile Paffard-Wray @Jefro118

Working on getting together interviews with open source projects and maintainers. This is heavily inspired by the original version of IndieHackers, which has been a big inspiration for me and many others. I think something similar for the open source community could be good for uncovering best practices and inspiring more developers to get involved in open source.

Moreover, there are good incentives at play - open source maintainers care a lot about reputation, funding and getting more eyes on their project but many are still averse to marketing. Doing some promotion on their behalf can be a win-win. If nothing else it will improve my writing and content marketing skills.
