Bootstrapping an open source company

In this second part of a conversation with Puppet creator and Reductive Labs founder Luke Kanies, we talk about bootstrapping an open source company. More so than just finding a need and the code to fill it, Luke walks us through the personal risk management thinking he went through before deciding to start his own company. Being in America, he has to content with the American health care system which is no fun for start-ups like him and I. He also goes over the safety-net that an open source project brings should the business-side fail, providing advice on picking an open source project to go with when starting a company.
